Born and raised in Vancouver, Stephen trained at the Vancouver Art School (Emily Carr) in the 70s. Woodworking and welding skills transfer into the pastels giving them grain and structure. At his exhibit, ‘Dancing on the Interface’ at Basic Inquiry Gallery and Studio in February, 2011, guests offered comments such as:

  • Bright, open palette
  • Free lines
  • Expressionistic and inspirational flow
  • Precarious balance
  • Combination of Picasso, Cezanne, the German Expressionists…with a little Matisse on the side

In September, 2013, at a second exhibit, ‘Re-formative, De-struct’, Stephen attended just before his passing:

  • Bigger, bolder expressions dashing with acrylic
  • More colourful countenances
  • New form and structure, as they re-form and de-struct.

Stephen passed away on Friday, October 11, 2013 after a battle with cancer.
