​While working there Steve made frequent visits to museums and galleries to study art, and particularly to draw from sculpture.

That rigorous training provided the foundation for a 20 year, globe spanning career as an advertising artist, often required to draw any given situation from any angle without reference, under very tight deadlines.

Thorough immersion in the disciplines of drawing, an interest in painting and sculpture, and a life long love of critters great and small have provided Steve with the tools needed to re-focus on a boyhood passion, sculpting animals.

Steve lives with his wife, Meridee Mandio, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
