Skip Steinworth lives and works in Stillwater, MN, an historic river town on the outskirts of the Twin Cities along the St. Croix River, a designated National Scenic Riverway. His interest in art began very early on; by his mid-teens he was selling work in local galleries. After earning a college art degree in the early 1970’s, he and his wife taught art in Melbourne, Australia. They returned to Minnesota and both began careers as full-time studio artists.
For a number of years he produced hand-printed lithographs, drawing images using special grease pencils on prepared limestones which were then etched, inked, and printed from a manually operated press. Gradually, he returned to his first love, pencil drawing, the medium he has worked in exclusively since then.
