Steve lives in Bondi with the beautiful Karen and has 2 grown children. He is a qualified Physiotherapist and has a wide range of clinical experience. Mid career, Steve took up life drawing (thinking that knowing anatomy would help)..it did to some extent, however Steve learned that LD is 'the foundation of art'. He decided to further pursue art and considers himself very fortunate to attend the NAS in 'Darlo' ( '93,4,5) Three years well spent!
In that final year Steve's proposal for a 2m square painting for a major redevelopment project in Darling Harbour was selected in open competition ($5k prize) among fellow students. During the process Steve was asked to do a second work, a photo of which appeared in the Telegraph. The commissions were a major surprise and stimulus for him to continue with his endeavours.
Steve did continue for a short while but family and work commitments prevailed. He states,'no regrets there'
Now there is time, and Stephen is slowly getting back to doing what he does best,creative work. His best is sure to come.
