Steven grew up at Hermannsburg. Both his parents are deceased, but his father was a Warlpiri man and his mother an Anmatyerre woman. His family links to the Ronji family at Hermannsburg. His country is around the Ormiston Gorge area.
Steven sat with artists Titus Renkaraka, Linburg Inkamala, Arnulf Ebatarinja and Clem Abbott, his cousin. He would watch them paint and they would give him tiny boards to experiment with. Slowly he was taught the Hermannsburg School landscape style of painting.
