Steve came to Starlight to retire from his job, but stopping work is the last thing he has done. Steve uses clay, pastel and paint with quiet determination. The expressive lines and colors, like his favorites red and brown, in his pastel work, evoke a sense of romantic storytelling. Steve draws inspiration from the other talented artists at Starlight and uses his own life and whatever is on his mind as a springboard for his art. Imaginative elements in his compositions include colorful sidewalks filled with people from his youth and his other cherished subject: cars. “I like drawing cars…cars are often on my mind”. Steve has been embroidering burlap into small tapestries. He has ideas for larger pieces such as a tablecloth comprised of smaller pieces stitched together.
