Episode 62 – Steve Cannon – Artist

Steve was born in Nebraska, grew up in Colorado and from a young age wanted to see the world.

He joined the navy and spent 4 years travelling the seas in a submarine.

Having visited Ireland several times with his family decided that Co.Mayo in the West of Ireland was a good place to settle for a while.

He found a his dream job of working on a ferry to Clareisland after working different jobs in the town of Westport.

It was a freak accident that made up Steve’s mind to focus on his art. He lost one of his legs after it was badly damaged by a mooring rope.

Steve is a prolific painter, sculptor and illustrator. He has written and illustrated a book and worked on various illustration projects.
