  Stephen's emergence as an artist followed a circuitous path. He showed an aptitude for realistic drawing at a very early age and upon finishing high school he earned income painting murals in homes. Though expressing himself artistically in many mediums over the years, his first career was as an Electrical Engineer and Mathematician. During a 25-year career as an electronics entrepreneur he developed numerous cutting-edge devices for the wireless communications industry. During these decades he was also an avid mountaineer in the Pacific Northwest and therein found inspiration both esthetically and spiritually. Upon retiring from engineering, he turned my focus to woodturning and stone carving. These disparate materials were merged as Stephen developed unique techniques that create imagery in woodturned objects using inlaid mineral crystals. An interest in Japanese art and Buddhist poetry influenced the designs as his technical skills developed. In 2013 and 2014 respectively Stephen was an Artist-in-Residence at Denali National Park, Alaska and Gates of the Arctic National Park, Alaska. Stephen teaches design, inlay, and finishing techniques at six renowned schools as well as demonstrating or lecturing at clubs and symposiums across the country and internationally. He resides on Oyster Bay in western Washington State with his wife Brenda, several pets, and a 1000 sq. ft. shop/studio. Stephen strives to conceive and create pieces that reach out and connect with others - works to stir the viewer’s memory and evoke a moment in time.
