Steve Sweetser, San Francisco artist and retired Veterinarian. He has always been ‘interested’
in art, however, he didn’t consider himself a serious artist until he retired from Veterinary
Medicine in 2014. His main emphasis is collage; however, he also is a photographer and
painter. He has mainly exhibited his work in the local San Francisco nonprofit programs,
ArtSpan and Sf Women Artists. His only formal training was through San Francisco City College
drawing classes with Diane Olivier at Fort Mason, as well as a summer Impressionist landscape
painting program at The Cape School of Art, Provincetown, MA. Steve is exploring various
artistic interests at this point in his career and has not settled on one distinct style or media. He
is enjoying the freedom to explore and is thrilled that his work is being accepted in all its forms.
Influences include: Rene Magritte, Fernand Léger, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Hilda Neily,
Henry Hensche, Robert Rauschenberg, Bruce Conner, Frida Kahlo, Jis Bar, Banksy, Mr.
Brainwash, Salvador Dali, and local artists such as Stephen Wagner, Jessica Levant, Diane
Hoffman, Dilicia Giron, Michael Endicott, and Diane Olivier.
