Steven Walden

Artist

Although Steven Walden was born and raised in Hope, Arkansas in 1975, he didn’t start painting until almost forty years later. In 2014, Steven was in the middle of pursuing graduate studies to be a therapist when he decided to take an art therapy class as an elective. Steven quickly found painting to be rewarding as well as therapeutic. His classmates and friends encouraged him to show his art to others, and he had his first exhibition in October later that year. Since then, Steven’s career has skyrocketed, as he has been fortunate enough to work at events and exhibitions across the country from New York to Chicago to San Francisco. Steven has created commissioned work for various pro sports franchises, private collections, as well as sports and pop culture celebrities. Celebrities Steven has worked alongside and who own or have featured his art include President Bill Clinton, Jon Hamm, Brie Larson, Hulk Hogan, Yadier Molina, Cal Ripken, Jr., Kurt Warner, Brett Hull, Ryne Sandberg, Reggie Jackson, and many others. In order to bridge his desire to help others and to create art, Steven began to work extensively with charities when he decided to attempt a career as a full-time artist. To date, his works have helped raise over a quarter of a million dollars in bids at various charity auctions and events. Steven and his work have been featured on local and national media news outlets, including NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox network affiliates, MLB.com, sportsillustrated.com, as well as a featured guest on a number of podcasts available online.
