Welcome to Steve Ko Art Studio  where you can have your portrait done from "the commissioned portrait artist for the Royal family" and where you can learn art in the classical style of the old masters.

Steve Ko is an internationally known portrait artist and a teacher who is driven by an incredible passion for creating art works in old master's style such as John Singer Sargent.  His works are often noted for their unique style, elegance, and technique.

Steve has developed his artistic ability at Art Center College of Design in  California under the guidance of masters such as Burne Hogarth, Harry Carmean, Gary Meyer, and Steve Huston. 

His use of vibrant colors and unique brush strokes makes his work an excellent choice for a wide range of projects and purposes.

Steve is accomplished in using traditional methods as well as modern technique.  His first picture book - "The Wherewolf?" - reveals his talents well.

With years of experience, Steve promises to make your portrait painting something to be treasured for generations to come.

Steve is a member of Portrait Society of America and lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife, Hanna, his beautiful two sons, and a little princess Ariel.


Steve can create the perfect piece for any purpose, including:


  • Personal portraits
  • Corporate portraits
  • Family portraits
  • Pet portraits
  • Portraits for your clients - great gift idea
  • Advertising
  • Children's picture books
  • Landscape paintings to decorate your home, office, or place of business
