His inspiration to paint developed in his late teens, after his family moved from Ventura county to New Mexico. Away from the ocean and his friends, Steve found comfort in drawing and painting. After graduating from high school, Hanks entered the University of California at Berkeley in the 1960's. Later, he attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and graduated from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland.
In 1973, Hanks began publishing a few of his originals as stone lithographs, posters, and limited edition prints.

Today, Steve Hanks continues to paint numerous, beautiful works that reflect a mastery of form and an intricate involvement with light. Highly detailed and realistic, his watercolors urge the viewer to become part of the creative process. Mr. Hanks is passionate about life, passionate about art. "I try to capture a certain introspective solitude in my figure," he comments, "and deal with a vulnerability that all of us, sometime, feel."

Steve Hanks has won many awards and honors. Since 1993, he has been one of U.S. Art Magazine's top ten American artists. Steve was selected to the U.S. Art Hall of Fame in 2000. His book, Moving On, which features over 160 full color paintings, was the Winner Silver, Best Coffee Table Art Book 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Hanks currently resided in Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife and three children.
