PAINTING HOPES AND FEARS

Whether he’s picking up a paintbrush, harvesting a crop, or putting the finishing touches on a winning logo, Steve is constantly in the act of creation. At his New York design firm, techno wizards click and drag, but Steve’s drafting table is outfitted with watercolors and wet brushes. At home on his organic farm, Steve appreciates the pattern language that emerges all around him. “There's light splashing over the same landscape, endlessly renewing it.”

It thrills me to have my work travel into all the spaces our hearts and minds create.

For Steve, painting is cathartic. “I paint my hopes and fears,” he says. Some of those images illustrate his company’s website, while others have found their way into the homes of collectors. “I sold two pieces to a collector in Iowa. One, dark and dramatic, was for the room that housed her deceased father’s collection. The other, more humorous piece was for a room populated by her own collection. Both were appropriate for where they landed. It thrills me to have my work travel into all the spaces our hearts and minds create.”

The mission of Studio E is perfectly in tune with Steve’s philosophy about collecting art. “Having art is having a piece of the artist. Studio E understands and facilitates that.”
