Biography: Steve was born August 18, 1947 in New York City. He attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois in 1969. His father, Henry Rogers, was a commercial artist who would often paint at home when Steve was a child. He studied in New York with artist Harold Stevenson,who would go on to found the prestigious Stevenson Academy of Fine Art, and later with legendary watercolor painter and instructor Robert E. Wood. Steve has made a career of painting since 1975. He lives at 26 Sunset Boulevard, Ormond Beach, Florida 32176 Ph.(904)441-4930, with his wife Janet, both of whom are Signature Members of the American Watercolor Society.Steve traveled to Greece for the first time in 1992 to teach a watercolor workshop and has returned to Greece and Italy, Spain and France many times since. These experiences have had a profound impact on the color, the sense of light and place, and overall direction of his painting. “God is light” I John 1:5. I paint the light, which is a reflection of God’s beauty, and it makes my work as an artist both joyful and rewarding
"My purpose, as an artist is to portray the beauty of light and color in God's world as I experience it within my heart. These images are a series of watercolors I have painted since my first trip to the Mediterranean in 1992. On this and subsequent trips I have been able to paint this beautiful land not as one who sees it every day, but as a “visitor”, who is awestruck by something fresh and new and at the same time very ancient." ~Steve Rogers
