Steve’s Artist Statement:
I am an Ames-area mixed media artist. Other than the two years I spent as a frustrated graphic design major in college, I am a self trained artist. Since 1992, I’ve worked as a high school special needs educator, a career choice that requires the much needed catharsis provided by art. In 2005, I began creating vessels and masks made from hard shell gourds. However, in the summer of 2010, my creative attention turned to assemblage and collage, the latter of which I continue to explore today. Sometimes playful, sometimes dark, my art is an attempt to question, poke fun at, or criticize human nature, particularly the consumer, fear-driven version of human nature that seems to dominate American culture.
