Statement:

In 2011 Steve jokingly drew a caricature of himself on a peanut shell.  At least five people laughed upon viewing it. Deeming that a success he used the peanut medium to make all of his favorite celebrities in miniature. The artwork went viral and he eventually found himself on shows like “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” “Ripley's Believe It Or Not,” and most recently “To Tell The Truth.”  Using this “peanut art” as a springboard, other art on unique canvases has followed. Hundreds of pieces later his work has been exhibited and is in private collections all over the world. 

Steve resides in Fort Thomas, KY, which is actually a suburb of Cincinnati and not at all like the Kentucky that is popping into your head as you read this. The one where hillbillies play banjos on their porches while swigging moonshine in their bare feet.
