About Steve Bauer
Originally from Kentucky, Steve received his degree in Fine Art (printmaking) from the University of Louisville. He moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 70s and began working as a house-painter. When the 80's Zolatone craze hit town, Steve was right there with his compressor, speckling everything from restaurants to convertibles. At the same time he began to create fine custom finishes for cabinetmakers, designers, architects, and contractors who came to rely upon Steve's strong color sense, and his proven ability to deliver top quality finishes in good time.
In addition to running a successful family business for almost three decades, Steve is an accomplished water-colorist, mural artist, furniture designer, and musician. He plays drums in three bands. He loves to cook. He has three sons.
