Steven Rayner was born in Yorkshire, England. He describes himself as a Sculptural Nomad, roaming the world and the sculptural process. He pinpoints the beginning of his lifelong commitment to the expanding field of sculpture, artistic research and problem solving at around the age of 4. By the time he was 11, he had built an electric vehicle and a motor scooter and customized many of his bicycles. Rayner has received many grants and exhibited nationally and internationally. He has taught across Canada and in England. He does not believe in coincidence and sees his life as a series of connected events.
