“There are in our lives moments of indescribable emotion, words fail us many times. This vision beyond the describable is the realm of non-representational art.” - Alexander Liberman

It is not Stephen’s thing to abstract the world around him. His challenge is to capture the “essence of life”, the unseen, without using words or identifiable objects. Stephen believes when a person is moved by his paintings, it is a "pure" experience, a communion, between the viewer and the painting, and on a deeper level, himself. This experience is not limited or influenced by words, places or things. It is beyond language, beyond differences, beyond dogma, beyond any and all association to the outside world. Therefore, what takes place is a private, personal conversation between the viewer and the painting, and he enjoys being the initiator of a profound natural experience of self-exploration. He believes that's where Freedom is found.

It’s been one of Stephen’s greatest pleasures in life to learn that sometimes, what a person experiences when viewing his art is so deep, that the place they discover within themselves is something they have longed to tap into, and his painting was the key to helping them unlock it. Stephen says “I believe that is what people recognize and appreciate about my art”. The colors and composition come from his subconscious connection to his intuitive vision; he says, “it's a spiritual thing”, my best work always comes from that part of me!”

In 1982 Stephen was awarded the Purchase Award at Ventura College School of Fine Art at Ventura, California, and later apprenticed with painter, teacher and theoretician, Wesley E. Johnson. During that time his focus turned to abstraction and he says, “it was then that my true artistic vision opened up and took flight.”

In 1998, a new dimension was added to Stephen’s career portfolio when major motion picture studios and national television networks brought his art to film! As well, with hundreds of collectors from around the world, Stephen’s audience is rapidly growing in an international market.

Artists are taught technique and how to see and draw the figurative world, but expression is from the soul and the soul longs for freedom. In expression there are no rules, but there IS truth, and truth can only be found deep within each and every one of us. Stephen’s art is an expression of the truth about him, his relationship with the All-That-Is and to everyone and everything around him. His work reflects his life; openly and honestly....and his belief that there are infinite possibilities in every situation. This is Stephen’s language transformed with paint for the pleasure of the viewer!

Viewing Stephen’s art is like brunch at a 5 star restaurant; it’s a feast.....for the eye as well as the soul.
