About Stephen Shub

Learn more about Stephen Shub from Monroe, NY - United States.








All I ever wanted to be was an artist. The way my art career started was an exercise in what many might call 'fate'. I think it's just the way life actually works. At 14, I seriously broke my leg, and missed the entire 9th grade. I had some very good home instructors helping me to keep up with my school work. Because I was bedridden, I tried to find things to occupy my down time. I always loved to draw and paint, so that was one of the ways that helped pass the hours. One thing led to another and the artwork I created, helped me to try out for, and be accepted into the High School of Art & Design in New York . It was an incredible introduction into art. The fate part is that now, 50 years later, the long-term effects of that same accident has forced me into an early retirement, and brought me full circle in a way that has a beautiful symmetry and I'm convinced that this couldn't be 'an accident'. I'm very proud of the work I've created, it utilizes all of my lifes experience, and I can honestly say that it's become a true reflection of me. My goal is to create memorable images that speaks to you in a very personal way, and brings the things I love, closer to you and what you find meaningful in your life.
