A lifelong traveler since his family moved to the Middle East in 1979, Steve McDonald has lived in Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, and Indonesia, visited dozens of other countries, and spent the better part of two decades traveling his native Canada from coast to coast via car, bus, helicopter, canoe, ship, and on foot. Everywhere he goes he soaks up the local color, the beauty of his surroundings, and, most of all, the lines-of the landscape, the architecture, the objects and machines he finds along the way.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, Steve's work has been showcased in many gallery exhibitions, television documentaries, and various publications, and can be found in many private homes and corporate collections worldwide.
