Just a self-taught artist painting since a child but only in the last three years more seriously in a studio/gallery in the historic warehouse district in downtown Houston ( Mother Dog Studios). My work is a cross between realism and neo-impressionism. I have sold my work since my teenage years to individuals and corporations(Burger King/Miami).law and medical offices. The greatest influence in my painting were/are the English painter J.M.W. Turner ( THE master of light,space and atmosphere) and the American genius Andrew Wyeth. My God their work is awesome.
I was granted three scholarships leaving high school but went a different direction. I retired from that and am now pursuing my art full time. I have won some art contests but nothing all that note-worthy. Hopefully that will change.
I have truly been blessed the last two years and especially this year in selling a number of works. I have four major collectors three of whom have purchased 10+ paintings each.I am very grateful.
What pleases me so much is when I receive a text or phone call from someone who has purchased one of my paintings...maybe months later.. and says,"Steve, I have just discovered a detail, a nuance or a subtlety in your painting that I never saw before and I love it." It brings me great joy that people find peace and reflection in my work.
I presently exhibit my work at my studio/gallery at Mother Dog and also at Antiques Houston,Inc at the Pavilion on Westheimer Rd... both In Houston,Tx. Also hope soon to be showing in the Allen Centers downtown.
I have won two int'l contests this yeat (2021) and was a featured artist at the Houston mayor's art dispaly.recently.
