Steve is a self-taught artist, who at the age of 16 won first place and presidential recognition for a sculpture depicting Michelangelo’s The Florentine Pietà. Throughout the years, he continued to progress as an artist developing a unique style enhanced by his fine art background and an extensive knowledge of caricature and graphic design. Steve’s most notable work to date is the “Protect Wild Dolphins” Florida license plate. The success of this plate has raised millions of dollars for marine conservation. Steve built on his success, creating more art full of detail, recurring characters and plenty of humor. He quickly partnered with companies like Sailfish Brewing company and Tito’s Vodka. For Steve, Castaway Coffee is a brand that reflects his great love of his community and natural surroundings.
