Artist: Meeting Robert Bateman - Oct. 23, 2009
Steven Young was born in Brantford, Ontario in 1983 and moved to Hornepayne in northern Ontario in 1992. He first tried rock as a medium while on vacation in Cuba in 1995. He now uses acrylic paints on canvas and rock from a local quarry. Steve is most interested in high detail realism in wildlife and nature scenes.
From 1996 - 2002, Steve lived with his parents just east of Wiarton overlooking Colpoy's Bay, a source of inspiration for many of his pieces. He has had no formal training in art. In October 2005, Steve graduated from Electrical Engineering Technology, Automated Systems, at Georgian College in Barrie. He is currently working as an artist and webmaster full-time.
