How many people just fall into art and are able to make a career painting…in less than a year. Steven Walden began painting when he took an art therapy class while working on a Masters Degree in counseling at Webster University. He received his degree in August of 2015 and hasn’t had time to use it as he is too busy with commissions.

Ken and Steven discuss art as legacy, sports, time spent with Jon Hamm, social media and the benefits of therapy.

Steven has rendered images of pop-culture figures Superman, Batman, Elsa (Frozen) and Don Draper as well as sports heroes including Ozzie Smith, Adam Wainwright, Kurt Warner, Michael Jordan and Walter Payton.

Check out his work at and follow him on social media.
