Steve was born and raised in the Clearfield area. He has been involved with the arts his whole life, having discovered a love and talent for drawing and painting in kindergarten. He is a successful self-taught artist, and has worked in graphic designs most of his adult life. He had a desire to open Market Street Studio and Gallery three years ago, saying, “One opportunity after another presented itself in order to make it all happen. I wanted to open it in order to have a permanent studio for myself, as well as a place to show and sell other local artists, and promote art, music, and creativity in the area.”
Steve is the current president of SRAC (Susquehanna River Art Center) and is on the Design Committee of the Clearfield Revitalization Corporation. He attends Hyde Weslyan Church, and uses his artistic talents for various church projects, including Vacation Bible School, and the Easter and Christmas plays.
