Ross Stefan’s father worked in advertising in Milwaukee and was very supportive of his son’s artistic ambitions. At 13, young Ross had his first art exhibition, which, as it happened, was a smash. Six years later, perhaps because of Ross’s health, the family moved to Arizona. In Arizona, Stefan took classes for two years, then struck out on his own, opening a studio in Tubac and venturing into Navajo territory to interpret the sun-drenched land and people in his inimitable style.
