In   Indiana painter, Steve Haigh was born and raised in Toledo, OH,where from a very young age his love for the outdoors was ignited.  As ayoung boy, Steve was always outside exploring the woods and meadows behind hishouse.  For as long as he can remember, he has been creating with hishands and excelling at art.  So much so that he was honored as the topartist at his high school graduation. 
Now as passionate outdoorsman and artist, you're just as likely tofind 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.  Hisinspiration and passion for painting comes from his lifelong experiences in theoutdoors, his family, and his faith.   " I feel God's pleasure when Ipaint," says Steve.  Steve donates his profits to charities such asWorld Vision and Building Tomorrow.

Steve spends many of his weekends painting "en pleinair", meaning outdoors from life.  "I try to get as much done asfast as possible outside to capture true colors and the quickly changinglight.  Using reference photos, I refine back at the studio," saysSteve, "To capture the true essence of a scene".  As a juried member of the Hamilton County Artists Association and a member ofIndiana Plein Air Painters Association, Steve has won many awards for his worksuch 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 FigureDrawing Merit Award at the Indianapolis Art Center, to name a few.
