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.
In 2021, Steven was inspired to give back to Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), Feed the Homeless and Toy Drives for children in need by founding and serving as Chair for Inspired Community Creations Nonprofit organization. The nonprofit hosted its inaugural charitable Inspirational Art Gala November 13th in partnership with Inspirational Designs By Dre to bring exposure to local artist, small to established businesses, and LIVE entertainment as the nonprofit stays true to the mission of giving back to HBCUs.
