Before you start reading Steven's bio, let me tell you about my experiences with him. There are so many reasons that Steven is one of my favorite teachers, here are a few!
I don't remember how many years ago I took my first class from Steven at the Thor Gallery in Colonial Beach. I had been taking classes for a while but had never seen so many students in a class before -- there must have been 25. Yes, this seems like a large class but somehow in addition to his demonstrations and teaching, he found time to work with each of us at whatever level we were.
I was so impressed with Steven and how he helped me that I have followed him for years and when I planned to take a group of artists to Ireland several years ago, whom did I ask to go with us as the teacher, Steven of course.
I can promise you that no matter how good an artist you are or aren't, Steven will help you grow as as well as teach you how to be a better artist.
Steven doesn't come to this area very often, so this is an opportunity you shouldn't miss. He teaches in oils but is competent in other mediums also.
