"I hand paint each sign on wood salvaged from renovation projects on 19th century buildings. I love the fact that someone worked with this wood in the 1800s and I now have the privilege of bringing it back to life.”

Steve started painting signs by hand for two reasons: To make thought-provoking items that brighten up offices, homes, and studios so he could leave his own desk to pursue his passion. With the precision of a surgeon, he paints each piece of reclaimed wood without any stencils, preferring the look of freehanded design. And that salvaged wood he uses? Most comes straight from the 1800s, giving each finished item a secret story to tell. Everything comes together to create stimulating artwork that honors its age while keeping a modern perspective, which Steve hopes inspires you to go after your own passion.
