Fine artist, Steve Cook, speaks about his photo-realism paintings with Our Ventura TV host, Ken McAlpine.
Steve has studied with some of the best modern plein-air painters (Ken Auster, John Comer, George Stickland and Ovanes Berberian).
His work is on display at galleries in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, several local restaurants and surf shops. He also has pieces in many private collections in the United States and Europe.
He recently was chosen by Firestone Vineyard to have 3 of his paintings featured on labels for a new series of wines. His studio is in Pierpont Beach, Ventura and is always open to visitors (call ahead). He is a life long surfer, a former Peace Corps Volunteer and a graduate of San Diego State University. He and his wife Carol have lived in Ventura for over 30 years and truly enjoy being part of the burgeoning art scene in their hometown.
