Steed was born in Arizona and often hiked through the rich nature of the deserts, mountains and forests of Arizona. Fascinated by the many local Native American tribes in those areas, such as the Hopi, Apache, Mohave, Navaho and Puebloan Peoples, Steed's art has been influenced in part by Native American spirituality and shamanism. He attended university in California with a degree in Psychology. Steed has enjoyed many years of coastal living on the west and east coasts, exhibiting his works of art in both areas.
Steed's art is also influenced by his explorations on land and in the ocean- swimming, snorkeling and Scuba diving. These experiences are combined with a fascination with cultural religions, spirituality and mythos, as well as his general curiosity and imagination for energies, quantum physics and the hidden/unseen in general.
Steed currently resides in New York City, where he is currently working on a watercolor collection.
