Stevan was born in Banatsko Novo Selo, Yugoslavia where he attended elementary school until he graduated in 1973.

 

During these early years of schooling Stevan greatly admired his art teacher, the well known professor Balnozan Luvius who as a habit often shared with his young art students the contents  of his amazing art studio. The variety of amazing oil paintings, carvings, charcoal drawings, sculptures and even huge carvings of marble were enough to instantly place the impressionable students in awe. Stevan credits Mr. Balnozan for giving him the inspiration, the vision, the desire to dream, create and express love of life in the form of art. Stevan is not a trained artist and dabbles in art for enjoyment.

 

In 1973, Stevan emigrated with family to Mississauga, Canada after years of a happy and thoroughly enjoyable small town childhood. Leaving friends and family was very painfully difficult.

 

Stevan attended McMaster University where he played varsity tennis and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He received his teaching degree (B. Ed.) from University of Toronto.

 

A full time teacher since 1987, he currently teaches a Special Education class in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.

In addition to teaching and dabbling in art Stevan also competes in provincial tennis tournaments. Stevan was a provincially ranked tennis player throughout the ‘80s and the ‘90s. In recognition of his accomplishments in local, provincial and international sports competitions Stevan has recently been inducted into the
City of Brampton Sports Hall of Fame.

 

In 1997 Stevan was presented with an Exceptional Teacher Award by The Learning Disabilities Association of Mississauga and North Peel in recognition for outstanding work with children who have learning disabilities.

 

Stevan is also an author of eight resource books for teachers. He has used the years of teaching experience, an eye for design and the ability to organize information on paper to create hundreds of visually attractive, printable and downloadable, often-used forms and worksheets for teachers.

yet forfeit his soul.”
