Steve A. Prince is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and he currently resides in Williamsburg, Virginia.  He is the Director of Engagement and Distinguished Artist in Residence at the Muscarelle Museum at William and Mary.  Prince received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his MFA in Printmaking and Sculpture from Michigan State University.  Prince is a mixed media artist, master printmaker, lecturer, educator, and art evangelist.  He has taught middle school, high school, community college, 4-year public and 4-year private, and has conducted workshops internationally in various media.

He has worked with several church denominations across the nation spreading a message of hope and renewal philosophically rooted in the cathartic nature of the Jazz Funerary tradition of New Orleans.  To Prince, art media is like languages to a linguist.  He is represented by Black Art in America in Columbus, Georgia, Zucot Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia and Stella Jones Gallery in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Prince is an award winning artist; the 2010 Teacher of the Year for the City of Hampton, a 2020 recipient of a VMFA (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts) Grant, and the 2020 Grand Prize Visual Art Winner of the Engage Art Competition.  Prince has shown his art internationally in various solo, group, and juried exhibitions.
