Scotia, New York native Bruce Von Stetina is an artist with a repertoire as extensive as his talent.

He has also designed and built custom motorcycles and created original art glass. Bruce’s work has been featured in a variety of publications, including Modern Masters of Marine and Naval Art and Biker Magazine. He has been a signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists and the International Society of Marine Painters. Prized by collectors, his work has been purchased for the private collections of celebrities, including Johnathan Winters.  He was the Artist of Choice of Evel Knievel. Bruce is also a veteran of the United States Air Force. The artist now resides and works in Madison, Florida.
