Stephen devotes a large amount of his time and energy to meticulously creating documentary paintings which are life size, millimetre accurate reproductions of actual rock art friezes he has visited in the landscape. He records a particular rock art panel only once. This ensures that not only do each of his artworks stand as a unique life size record of Southern Africa’s irreplaceable art legacy, but also that each work holds an intrinsic and escalating monetary value. His paintings reveal a wealth of detail and imagery that is sometimes faded and not easily visible to the naked eye.
