Steven Carroll, a native of Decatur, Georgia, is a contemporary abstract artist. His childhood involvement in music and art cultivated an interest in drawing and painting. Unlike most artists studying art, Steven attended Tennessee State University and received a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master’s in Educational Technology.


In 2016, Steven began an entrepreneurial spirit by investing and birthing his own art company, Inspirational Designs By DRE. The company encompasses two different sectors: paint parties (publicly – local lounges and privately – company, birthday, etc.) and contemporary art paintings. WSB-TV Atlanta Channel 2 Action News website featured Steven's paintings from the March 2019 Pancake and Booze Atlanta Art Show. Steven's popular painting of African American abolitionist Frederick Douglass is a favorite of his audience. Steven captures the hearts and minds of art enthusiasts with motivating messages of inspiration through his contemporary abstract art.
