"It's as if everything has stopped, I feel peace and quiet, and my cares have disappeared."
In 2008, Stevie boy lost his job at the crane yard. The crane yard was his joy, however Stevie often found himself on late nights out with his boss and coworkers in bars. Stevie recounted many nights where nights seemed to go "too far". Soon after losing work, Stevie moved in with his dad. As expected, the tension between them drove him out of the home. "My brother is a rocket scientist. He was always better at following the rules in the house", he explained. We could see the depths of Stevie's heart and the yearning for a healthy relationship with his dad.After moving out of his fathers place, Stevie was fortunate to find residence in a metal shop for some time. It was here he began making and fabricating parts for bikes. Even today, Stevie's custom bikes are known around Santa Ana's downtown neighborhoods. On a few occasions, his bikes have been stolen, however were always identified and returned by friends aware of his craftiness. "Necessity is the mother of invention", he explained as it pertains to his bicycles.
Stevie was incredibly emotional when he saw his piece. His eyes filled up with tears as he described the peace and joy the moment the canvas was revealed. "It's as if everything has stopped, I feel peace and quiet, and my cares have disappeared." This sale is now the beginning of something new for him. Praying for the freedom for Stevie to step into his destiny and calling in his life. Stevie Boy also dreams of buying a surf board and getting back in the water. Excited to make his dreams come true again. Thank you to all who support and encourage faces of Santa Ana. We are eternally grateful.
