Born in Milbrae, California in 1957 Steven spent the first 21 years of his life in the beautiful surrounding of Northern California. Both parents were practicing artists who nurtured Steven's love of drawing and painting from an early age.
In 1982, he obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Communication from California State University, Long Beach working the first 6 years of his professional art career as Graphic Designer in Los Angeles, CA.
From 1988 to 2003 Steven owned and operated the Curry Design Agency based in Santa Monica, California. CDA's many prestigious clients included Nissan North America, Sony Pictures, and the Academy Awards. CDA's significant impact on the graphic design industry is emphasized by having three graphic design projects selected to be archived in the collections of the United States' Library of Congress.
After more than 15 years of commercial success, Steven retired his design agency in order to pursue his fine art passion full time, choosing the Ojai Valley of California as home and inspiration.
