Full Artist Bio

Steven Stroud was born and raised in Park Ridge, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He holds degrees from Drake University and The Art Center College of Design. He served four years in the U. S. Navy as a graphic artist and photographer.

Mr. Stroud was an illustrator for over twenty-five years and has done covers of countless bestsellers, including those by Isaac Asimov, Stephen King, Clive Cussler, and John Sanford.

Mr. Stroud is featured in the books The Illustrator in America, by Walter Reed and Knowing Darkness, Artists inspired by Stephen King, by George Beahm.

Mr. Stroud’s love of landscape painting led to a second career. For the past ten years he has devoted himself exclusively to gallery painting and landscapes. In that time, he has had numerous highly successful group and one-man shows. His work is in the permanent collection of the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut as well as hundreds of private collections

Mr. Stroud’s studio is located in the enormous sky-lit loft of a 135 year-old former factory near the banks of the Housatonic River. He and his wife, Nancy, have lived in Shelton, Connecticut for 33 years. They have two children, Sarah, a staff member with the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts and Michael, former lead guitar with Dashboard Confessional and currently one-half of the band RATATAT.
