Steven Martin, Carterville, IL

STEVEN MONROE MARTIN has never been able to get out of the woods.  Whether it was spending summers growing up on his grandfather's southern Illinois farm or studying bryology and ethnobotany during his college years, the woods have always brought out the best in him. After earning a B.S. and M.S. in Botany he chose to follow his heart back to his grandfather's farm and pursue his art.  Since 1977 he has developed a bandsaw box technique to create his own style of sculptural yet functional boxes.
