///////////////////// Artist's Biography

Throughout his life, Steve McMillan has been inspired and sustained by the natural world and spends much of his time outside. Whether it's a bike ride in the Bellingham area countryside, or a week-long backpacking trip in the High Sierra, he is renewed and invigorated by being in and moving through landscape. It is this sense of renewal that he seeks to share with others.

Born in Berkeley, California, on December 21, 1949, he was raised in a home that had a sweeping view of the San Francisco Bay. This scene kindled his interest in landscape and was one of his earliest drawing subjects. He had his first one man show when he was sixteen.
