Stephen works with print, paint and letterpress to create text-based works which articulate the problems, frustrations and barriers that he struggles against when trying to live independently.
He works as one half of a Development Team with Julie Shackleton. He has been a member of Pyramid for many years and is an active member of the Ribblehead Group.
Stephen created Moan Mats for the BEYOND Festival in 2018 – a series of site specific multiples, banners and prints. He also created The Only Way Is Up – a print based work designed specifically for the staircase gallery in Leeds Town Hall.
As part of the Ribblehead Group Stephen has exhibited at all the major galleries and many cultural events in Leeds. In 2016 they created Bringing the Outside In, a multi-artform exploration of the strip of south Leeds Pyramid in Holbeck with the Tetley itself.
