Steve had a background as an illustrator in advertising which creatively set him up as a painter in fine art. He worked in oils and acrylic on canvas painting cityscapes, landscapes and still life. He was particularly interested in city environmental graphics that we see everyday and included them in his paintings. He studied art at North Adelaide School of Art and conceptual art at the Illustrators Workshop in New York. He exhibited in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and his work is represented in collections throughout Australia, as well as UK, USA and Europe.
