Steve got his start doing oil paintings on canvas, but then got distracted with computers and didn’t paint anything for years. Then came Savage Worlds RPG; he started playing and painted a couple characters for the group. But it wasn’t until he was in a local game store and noticed a Flames of War display stand that his passion was really ignited. After browsing the books and blister packs, a light went off and he was off and running that very evening.
At the NHMGS Enfilade Convention in 2011, Steve entered the Flames of War tournament and won best painted army. He began to think maybe there was something to this after all. What started out as 15mm WW2 miniatures has now branched into all genres and scales, including terrain making. At the NHMGS Enfilade Convention 2017, he won Best of Theme with painted DUKW vehicles and crew. Whether it be historical, science fiction, fantasy, steampunk – you name it – Steve is honored to paint for you. Now and then, you might even find him making time to paint his own miniatures!
Steve owns Taran Design Studio, a painting and terrain studio that keeps him busy. He also does contract work for CGR Painters.
