Steve Justice was born in Homestead, Pittsburgh in 1956 (Gemini/Monkey). His mother was a Finn and his father was an engineer. In his formative years of stone and steel, Steve showed early aptitude for art and studied at the Carnegie Institute under Joseph C. Fitzpatrick, who had also taught Andy Warhol. Steve then studied industrial design at the University of Cincinnati, after which he was employed for many years designing a variety of consumer and commercial products, most notably consumer glassware (FTD, Coke &c). Partway into his design career he was drawn back to the practice of fine art and began producing large, satirical oil portraits, at first part-time and now full-time. He proceeded to participate in more than a hundred exhibitions, in spite of a 6-year hiatus, during which he drew and made prints while living in Hong Kong. He and his wife Dr. Lorraine Justice now reside in Rochester, NY. Steve Justice is deeply committed to entertaining, enlightening and educating viewers through his art, so stay tuned.
