"Stephens creativity sprouted early in his life as he made his own toys out of pipe-cleaners, Styrofoam balls, pant and a mix of fabric and found objects.
Early artistic influence included his Grandma who painted as a hobby. And during his last year at CSULB his fine art painting instructor who encouraged to paint from the heart, and less from the mind.
While art making and the art community is a large part of Stephens life, one has to pay the bills, and that is done (as with most artists) with a day job, of which he is currently in transition (any leads will be appreciated!) along with taking freelance graphic and website design projects.
Juggling all of the above keeps Stephen busy with hopes that his artwork will be seen in major museums and galleries, and getting his ‘15 minutes of fame.’
