Born in Fairfax, VA, Steve does not view himself as a traditional professional artist. To the contrary, he is a retired career Naval Officer, helicopter pilot, and current metal fabrication small business owner. though he does hold degrees in mechanical engineering, and human systems integration, his only formal training as an artist has been through a few classes at Anne Arundel Community College, and a course in marble carving in pietrasanta, italy. These classes re-ignited a long-dormant passion for the arts that Steve hadn’t explored since high school. He currently resides in Mechanicsville, MD, and was a 2019 recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council’s Public Art project grant for his installation piece “Wind Cheer” at the Port of Leonardtown Winery in Leonardtown, MD.
