   Steven Hammond was born in Pontiac Michigan of a working class family with traditional hard-working American values and pursuits. He has worked for General Motors for 25 years as a U.A.W worker and was laid off along with thousands of other autoworkers. He has recently returned to GM but in a much more difficult job. These troubling times have led Steven to develop his amazing talent even more with continued vigor and creativity. First inspiring his paintings were the works of Vincent Van Gogh; touching a deep emotional tone in his artwork. His art is strong, visually high impact with a wonderful color palate and use of texture for an emphasis on the dramatic. Steven is a US Navy veteran, following the route of so many young American men of his generation.

It is indeed a pleasure and honor to present to you one of the most interesting and collectable American Heartland worker-painters. - Don Noyes-More Ph.D., Editor in Chief
