Author bio:

Like many artists, Steven Pearce got his start at a very early age. His mother was an accomplished oil painter, and his father was an oil painter, sculptor, and master jeweller. Their encouragement and valuable knowledge helped Steven grow as an artist. Creating art with a pencil has been and continues to be a passion of Steven's, and is always at the forefront of the mediums he uses. He enjoys experimenting with other media, including coloured pencil, oil, and acrylics. Steven loves drawing portraits, still life, wildlife, landscapes, and anything that represents well in graphite and charcoal.
