"Masters of the past and artists of the present use techniques to create images that please, relax and inspire us in a very personal and unique way.
Sharing our souls and our minds through the arts and imagery is alive in many media."
Born in rural Minnesota. His childhood memories are filled with thoughts of family, friends and activities that kept the soul alive during the Upper Midwest’s long winter months.
His family relocated to Ft. Myers, Florida when Stephen was still in grade school. His love for the water began at this early age when he spent many days (literally) sailing into the sunset on his catamaran.
Investigating the uniqueness of harbors and sunsets became a passion in those early years. Even now, Stephen’s nautical focus grows deeper every day, with the never-ending inspiration that comes from carefully observing the sea and the water in all of their contrasts
Stephen’s work was recognized by many, and his work adorned the covers of national magazines that ran the gamut from commercial, industrial, and musical amphitheater promotions to trendsetting publications such as AV/Video.During these years, Stephen was commissioned to produce custom images including nautical, southwestern and abstract topics. He was recognized as a leader in digital imagery and placed “Best of Show” in important exhibits in Los Angeles and across Southern California.
