Steve Padden

Born and educated in the UK where he was awarded a degree in Fine Art, with a major in sculpture and drawing.  In the USA, his creative talents eventually expressed themselves fully in industrial design; most recently with the Portable Painter Classic and the new Portable Painter Micro.  As you will see, they benefit from his many years in product development, a lifetime of painting in various media, plus his long experience wrangling watercolors and other art supplies while traveling!
