For the past twenty-four years he and his wife, Nancy, have lived in Connecticut on the banks of the Housatonic River. They have two children, Sarah and Michael. Steven worked for many years as an illustrator and his paintings have graced the covers of books by Stephen King, Clive Cussler and John Sanford. Steven Stroud was president of the society from 1997-1998. Steven's oils reflect his passion for landscape painting. The dramatic sense of light and provocative compositions characterize Steven's paintings. He was greatly impressed with the Hudson River School and tries to keep the essence alive in his art. His work can be found in major museums, including the Florence Griswald Museum in Connecticut. Steven is also represented by galleries in Connecticut, Vermont, Illinois, and Utah and has had several highly successful one-man shows.
