About the Artist:
Steven was exposed to basketry at an early age with the influence of his mother, Mary Carty. However he did not take it up as a trade until later in life when he became a professional basket weaver and basketry teacher.
Though he often tends to drift away from traditional styles and patterns, he does use many traditional and local materials. Some of which he often gathers from the wild. Much of his weaving inspiration comes from the land where he gathers these wild materials, the creeks, forests, and shores of South Jersey.

Not only can many of Steven’s baskets be found on display locally, he himself can be found weaving at events and festivals across New Jersey and much of Pennsylvania. He has also taught, demoed, or displayed basketry at places such as Rutgers Camden, Peters Valley School of Craft, Perkins Center For the Arts, Awbury Arboretum, Burlington County Parks Department, Ocean County Library System, Whitesbog Historic Village, James Still Historic Site and Education Center, and for the NSCDA at Historic Peachfield.
