Steven Graber Biography
By combining a highly realistic style with a unique technique, Steven Graber creates scenes that look like photographs. These images transport the viewer to another place and time.
“I seek to convey an inner peace and harmony by creating a world made of light and mood,” Graber says, “one that is timeless and deeply personal; where imagination is free and boundless; where the sanctity of the individual soul is cherished and preserved, untouched by outside judgment nor desecrated by society’s labels.”
A native of Kansas, Graber moved with his wife Roxann to the Kansas countryside to establish a connection with the earth. They live on a 100-acre farm, where Graber’s studio is housed in a converted granary from which he can observe nature.
Graber actually had little exposure to art as a child, and majored in history at the University of Redlands, California. After a four-year stint in the Navy, he began a career in sales, but at 33, wanting more out of life, he sat down one day to draw - and has never stopped.
Graber has had numerous solo exhibitions throughout the country and has participated in many group exhibitions as well. He has been featured in a number of publications, including American Artist Magazine. We’re proud to offer a limited edition giclée print of Graber’s original work, Rue de Banque, in celebration of our 2000 season.
