About Steve Schmeck

Steve and his wife Sue Robishaw live on their backwoods homestead on 80 remote acres in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. They live in an ‘underground’, sod-roofed home that they built themselves, have a large organic garden that provides much of their food, and power their off-grid homestead with solar power.

Steve became involved in art and woodworking when he was young, and it has permeated his life since. Majoring in Art in college, Steve emerged into his art career in the late 70’s, when he decided to realize his vision of living and sculpting in the Northwoods. He is now a nationally recognized bowl and spoon carver with both bowls and spoons in many private collections.

Other areas of interest are music (he is a fiddler), musical instrument restoration and repair, boat building, and recumbent bicycles (for years he rode a home-built, wood recumbent). Lately he has been riding his age in miles to celebrate his birthday; last year, 70 miles.
