Art of Kuzma | About

Welcome to my online gallery!


With three studios in New Jersey, Steve Kuzma graduated with honors from the Parsons School of Art and studied under fellowships in Italy and France. 


Steve is a full-time artist, illustrator and educator with over 30 years professional industry experience. He has exhibited across continental United States with illustrations that are internationally acclaimed and recognized. 

He is known for his contemporary style with impressionist brushwork, avant-garde layering techniques including watercolor, water-mixable oil and pastel to create a blissful connection to nature and spirituality for the viewer. He also makes use of powerful, humanistic and joyous statements. His work reveals the sculptural and luminous nature of paint layering and combines a love of nature and a strong spiritual sensibility. He is inspired to create life within the painting and to gain a direct conduit into the human soul, which makes him equally versatile in several genres including landscape, seascape, floral, portrait and sports. To this end, he can also specially embellish, glaze and pastel infuse his prints on  fine art canvas and paper.


Because of his skills, Steve has garnered several awards:

2013: A. Gottleib award, Jackson Pollock- Krasner award grant recipient
2013: Healing Arts Programs, Atlanticare Capemay NJ, Award- the first layer of his art was chosen for the Carrier Clinic in Skillman, NJ for the presentation and open house of the new building.

(A separate and complete resume, listing of awards, including numerous “Best in Show” from juried exhibitions is available).
