Stephen has been a professional artists for more than 20 years. During this time he has worked in many media, developing public art schemes and fulfilling private commissions. His work is informed by a deep sense of place and time born of his upbringing on a Lancashire farm, as well as a passion for exploring the properties of materials and the possibilities they hold within.
Recent works have focused on figurative portraiture including larger than life size statues as well as smaller busts. To keep control of the whole creative process Stephen has established his own fine art bronze casting foundry. bronzecast.co.uk
In 1996 he established Scartworks ltd. a company dedicated to creating high quality public artwork for a wide range of clients. To date Scartworks has successfully designed and realised over 100 commissions throughout the UK. It also became apparent that there was a growing need in the North West for a company that could provided advice and expertise to other professional artists, helping them to create and install artworks that were beyond their capabilities or scale.
