Stephen gained BA Honours in Fine Art at Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1981, where he experimented with painting techniques, incorporating soft focus techniques using an airbrush. “My paintings were influenced by my love of film and included paintings of many film star portraits, such as Laurel and Hardy, Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana” Stephen gained much commercial success throughout the eighties with three successful shows at Liberty’s, Regent Street London.
