Steve's exposure to the beauty and wonder of the natural world began playing in the woods and on the water. His school years of math and science fulfilled a fascination. Decades of residential construction have integrated good building skill into Steve's repertoire. Then came the realization that art has a more complex understanding and greater expression of our ways and days on planet Earth. Self-taught through observation and experimentation this Connecticut Yankee likes to start with an idea and fill in the steps as they develop. Putting together shapes and forms from his surroundings Steve hopes to convey a little enjoyment and nourishment for the soul from the soul. Counter to the current of prevailing tech culture these pieces of furniture and mobiles help sustain the beauty and wonder of the natural world. One original is worth a mouthful of reproductions.
