Stephen's work is inspired by his environment, the great southern island continent Australia and its history. The present and future of his home are what intrigues him the most. At the moment, he works mostly in metal although he has recently included other natural materials in his sculptures such as stone and wood. His subjects are derived from nature and can go from realism to complete abstract form or symbolism. There is an environmental theme that connects all his sculptures together. He is always searching for new ways to express his belief.
