Steve Wirtz is a full-time artist working primarily in the 3-d realm. His current materials of choice are wire and paper. Steve sells his art at festivals around the country, and is represented by a select number of fine galleries; which are listed on this website. Steve works out of his northern Michigan studio where he enjoys the outdoors very much.

NOTE from Steve: MOST ARTISTS FIND INSPIRATION AND ASSISTANCE FROM MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES. I'D LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE HERE.
