About the Artist



Fine Art

Art – Breath – Movement

This art is born out of a love of the human form and its natural motion. It is powerful, passionate, and embraces both human and natural forms.

Steven was born and raised near the North Shore of Chicago where he began drawing at a age five. In high school he met a regionally known sculptor and began his fine arts education. During that time, Steven was given a copy of Gray’s Anatomy. He became fascinated by what he saw and immediately began to draw directly from the book, changing the course of his life and starting a lifelong study of the human form.

Steven received an art scholarship to Bradley University. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with an emphasis on Bio-technical Illustration. While at the University of Illinois, Steven began to work for the Biomechanical Engineering department. His early work combining computers, art, and human motion became the genesis of Steven’s fine art, regardless of media. He would go on to draw, paint and sculpt thousands of interpretations of the human form in his own distinctive style.

In 1982 Steven moved to Southern California for the opportunity to work at an Olympic research center focused on Sports Medicine and Biomechical Engineering. Looking to the future, Steve quickly recognized the promise of what computer illustration could bring to traditional graphic design techniques. After seven years of working in corporate presentation graphics, Steven founded BioDesign Communications in 1989.

BioDesign was a highly specialized computer graphics company supplying creative illustrations to the Life Science, Medical Device, and Healthcare industries. Steven has produced medical and life science images for companies around the world, and has illustrated four books, completed a series of life science illustrations for the Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California.

Throughout this time Steven continued to draw and sculpt, dedicating his life to the arts. His fascination with drawing the human form continues to ignite his creative talent and provides him with an endless supply of material. Steven currently teaches a stone sculpting class at the Laguna College of Art & Design.

In addition to working as an Illustrator and fine artist, Steven has been the Cultural Arts Chair for the CA PTA and a leading art advocate Statewide. For the past twelve years Steven has been a volunteer legislative advocate, recruiting and training parents, running legislative junkets to Sacramento and leading parents in the cause of public education.

Steven is a volunteer art teacher at a local elementary school and has taught students art privately. Steven has studied Kenpo Karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with his son and daughter and practices yoga. He lives in Huntington Beach with his wife and two children.
