Sculptures ~ plates ~ and vessels covered with ~ exquisitely detailed ~ wry vignettes focused on the ~ tragicomedy of the human condition
Born in Stoke On Trent, England in 1964, in Australia since 1999. Stephen trained at The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, Scotland, where he majored in painting. Making his home and a significant international reputation from Sydney, he remains aloof from any artist pigeon-hole. He works with both paint and clay and has also undertaken a number of site-specific sculpture commissions.
