“I spent most of my time painting to show I could paint what I see. Now, I try to paint what I feel.”
Steve Grzyb grew up in West Virginia where he spent many days as a child exploring and learning to appreciate the beauty of the hills, valleys, woods, and farmlands of the Appalachian Mountains. It was perfectly normal back then for kids to take off exploring in the morning and not return until supper time. No matter where he is today the rich colors and smoky air of the fall always creates a yearning to go back home. Although he always had a knack for drawing, Steve really didn’t discover art until he was a junior in high school in Cleveland, Ohio, where he won a National Scholastic Art Award for some of his first works.
