Steve works in watercolor, acrylic, and oil, and teaches both for The Art League in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as in workshops across the country and abroad. Steve says that his goal as an artist is to be creative and his goal as a teacher is to help his students learn to interpret the world around them, not to promote the belief that the goal of art is the perfect rendering of a subject.
