An Artist Fellow of the American Society of Aviation Artists, Steve Anderson creates works that reflect scrupulous attention to historically accurate detail, from the colorful markings on the fuselages to the time of day of an actual battle. Steve’s career has ranged from teaching fine arts and creating Emmy award-winning special effects, to being a Senior Show Designer and Art Director at Walt Disney Imagineering. Since 2002, he has devoted himself full-time to his art.

Another of Steve’s lifetime goals has been to become a proficient firearms engraver. Considered by many as the ultimate “steel canvas,” the art of engraving is without a doubt, the most challenging of all.
