Steve C. LaRance
I grew up in a small town along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front. My father was a Metis cowboy who was a roper, ranch hand, and barber. My mother was an English woman who enjoyed music and art. I am an enrolled member of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana.
Country life surrounded me with wide open spaces, farms and ranches, rodeos, beer, and two-lane roads. As a teenager I was heavily influenced by hot rods, motorcycles and rock n’ roll. I studied Engineering and Design at Montana State University and earned a BFA from The University of Montana. In 1975 I opened my own graphic design business, which eventually led to serving as Director of Corporate Image for an international group of industrial companies until retiring to continue making art.
