My Artistic Journey

Stephen’s artwork has been described as calming and meditative. His life has been driven by the firm inner certainty there is more to reality than can be seen or touched in the physical world, inspiring abstract paintings, figurative busts, and installations with sun-bleached chaparral stumps and twisted steel beams to symbolize the unseen dimensions beyond. He created wood and brass sculptures to represent the genetic helix, suspending them in building spaces.

In the 1990s, Stephen undertook a series of drawings using a sudden art method learned from his mentor. The spontaneous technique explores where people come from before birth and return to someday. Non-physical environments are populated by an enormous variety of organized and intelligent forms of energy he calls Living Portraits. Stephen draws and paints with a child-like openness to capture snapshots of the living portraits representing the playfulness of the universe. He has shown his artwork in Madrid and Monaco, with upcoming events in Paris and Berlin.
