After finishing his formal training in 1990 (University of Regina, M.F.A.) Steve practiced as a metal sculptor in the very formalist setting of Edmonton. Eventually he gave in to his love of drawing and representation and was seduced by the immediacy and challenges of oil paint. He began exploring the medium full time in 1995.
He is also a well-known western Canadian singer-songwriter with a number of recordings that have received critical acclaim. He and his band “The Lokels” perform regularly and can be heard on the radio airwaves from commercial to college to frequencies in between.
