Stig Lindow was born in 1969 in Mont Clair, NJ but grew up in Florida. Those around Stig noticed his artistic talents long before he did. Up until 1983 he enjoyed the art classes provided by Public Schools , then was chosen to take part in an advanced art class with Arlien Cameron who supported self awareness in learning. Stig was fortunate to have this mentor throughout High School where he was exposed to various mediums from jewelry to clay, oils, acrylics, enamel, chalk, pastels and water colors. Stig has continued to self study.
