Since retiring. Stephen has concentrated on oil portraits and watercolour sketching.
Stephen worked in London as a professional illustrator and story-board artist for TV production companies. Moving to Spain after retirement, he commenced oil painting and working on portrait and still-life commissions, holding successful exhibitions in the Alicante region. Stephen returned to the UK to continue drawing and painting with work exhibited in The Usher Gallery Lincoln, The Harley Gallery in Worksop and a solo exhibition at the Cath Ray Gallery in Retford. Drawing loose graphite and watercolours gives his small sketches a unique and recognisable style.
