  • About Home : A group exhibition of reimagined birdhouses. Our participating artists received identical blank birdhouse to customize, paint, sculpt, etc., to create a work of unique expression. A home is generally a place that is close to the heart of the owner, and can become a prized possession. Places like homes can trigger self-reflection, thoughts about who someone is or used to be or who they might become.
  • Raised in Chula Vista, California, Steven was taught to draw by his older brother and has since developed his style through trial and error. His early work was shaped by his path through skateboarding, bicycling and graffiti as well as his fascination with comic books and the drawings in early Dungeons and Dragons books. Classic literature, folklore and his mother’s Costa Rican culture and wife’s Mexican heritage have all played a big part in his work. Recently his predominant interest has been in the separation that humans have tried to put between themselves and nature and the effects that is has.
