Steve Polomchak (1922-1996) lived in Crown Point, Indiana where he was a commercial artist by trade. He spent most of his career as Art Director with Federal Sign. Over the years, he became known for his watercolor landscapes, and depiction of the Amish in rural landscapes.
Polomchak published many of his original works and sold his paintings and prints in area galleries as well as at art fairs. His son, Mark Polomchak, adopted much of his painting style with a contemporary edge and continues to share his painting techniques today.
