Indiana painter, Steve Haigh is a passionate outdoorsman and artist. Largely self-taught, Steve paints en plein air -- a French term for in the open air -- and in his studio. With a key eye for detail, light, and beauty, his inspiration and passion for painting comes from his lifelong experiences in the outdoors, his family, and his faith. "I feel God's pleasure when I paint," says Steve. You're just as likely to find Steve with a fly rod in hand as you are a paintbrush, chasing trout, bass, and beautiful scenery around Indiana or as far away as Montana.
As a juried member of the Hamilton County Artists Association and a member of the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association, Steve has won many awards for his work such as Honorable Mention at the Carmel On Canvas Plein Air Event, the People's Choice Award at the TC Steele Plein Air Event, and the Figure Drawing Merit Award at the Indianapolis Art Center, to name a few.
Steve's paintings can be found in private collections throughoutthe United States.
