Stephen has exhibited in shows in Toronto and Vancouver. He was a featured artist with "The Gallery Without Walls" in Toronto showing in a wide variety of venues during the late 1980's including "No Particular Civilization", "Genitive Forum", and "Di-Vercity/Urban Core".
In the early 1990's Stephen relocated to British Columbia and set out to create a name for himself as an artist in Vancouver. For three years his work was showcased exclusively in the window of "Bianca Luce" in the West End of Vancouver, establishing his presence and style on the west coast.
In 1998 he participated in the VOX Exhibition and the next year he had his first solo show at the Exhibitions Gallery. He is regularly featured in the yearly "Pride in Art" show, winning the "Best in Show" award in 2001. Also in 2001, he was commissioned by Universal Studios to paint a large portrait of actress Parker Pose that was featured in the film "Jose and the Pussycats'".
Stephen’s next solo show was in the spring of 2003 at the Anne Carlson Fine Art Gallery and was titled “Painted Ladies” showcasing a series of his original portraits.
One of Stephen’s unique works is a 36" X 48" portrait titled “Tiara” which is composed entirely of over 12,000 sequins on canvas and was featured in the “Face Up Front” exhibition at the Glass Onion Gallery in 2004, and was later sold at auction in 2009.
Also in 2004 he was selected as a featured artist in the “Art For Life” charity auction. He created a series of paintings of architectural details of Vancouver buildings especially for this fine art auction. These paintings were sold at this charitable event in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Stephen's work has been featured since 2000 in the "Pride in Art" show, now know as the "Queer Arts Festival" where he was the Signature Artist for the 2011 Exhibition.
In the fall of 2013, he had a solo show at "Volume Studio". This was the first time that ZeeClay prints of selected paintings were available for purchase.
In 2014, Stephen's iconic painting, "Nice Dress" was featured in the "Vancity Art Window" at Robson and Davie.
