Steve Hosch -Mixed Media Artist
Gilbert, IA

White creating assemblages with found objects and other castaway treasures is certainly the intersection of Steve's passions. More than that, it's about catharsis and transformation. Steve Hosch's art is about transforming clutter into masterpieces. Finances, relationships, mind-numbing jobs, mortality, and other potentially stressful factors affect our lives and clutter our brains.

Since delving into assemblage art early in 2011, Steve's process as an artist has been an attempt to transform the clutter in his head and heart into art. Through his clutter-to-art process, he enhances his creativity.

Steve lives in Gilbert, IA with his wife Shellie; his two teenage daughters, Kenzie and Zoe; and Elmo, 15 pounds of spoiled pooch.
