Rodger Stevens was born in Brooklyn, New York, where he spent most of his childhood playing in the street and drawing. Whenever not rigorously engaged in those pursuits, he attended the Poly Prep Country Day School. After receiving degrees in both Economics, from Pace University in New York, and Fine Art, from the Parsons School of Design in New York – and working like mad – he is now an internationally exhibited artist. Rodger currently resides in Nyack, New York, where he continues to work like mad alongside his artist wife, Johanna Goodman, and his two incandescent little kids.
