Stefan's work with watercolour typifies the creative and design style of his original homeland with his approach to minimalism and subtraction. He takes a contemporary approach to working with watercolour on paper. His work is inspired by many road trips through country Australia. His interest in the natural environment & delicate shifting patterns in nature are often a starting point for paintings in acrylic & watercolour. The form and textures of the landscape are ultimately reduced to a few but exact colour planes.
Stefan’s work has been collected by the Victorian & Queensland State Libraries, Artbank the NAB collection, and numerous private collections throughout Australia and Europe. He has been awarded the Yerring Station Sculpture prize & the Banyule Art Prize "environment Award.
Stefan exhibits widely as a solo artist and as part of collaborative exhibitions.

Exert from Panorama Essay
"He knows what he wants to say and has found his medium, predominantly watercolour, which he handles as though the stuff is in his bloodstream. He is aware that it’s not about mastering the medium. Instead, he recognises clearly what watercolour wants to do all by itself and has learned to collaborate with it, to work in tandem – artist and medium – so that the outcome rewards both. Balance and unity are not just properties of composition but of process as well. So, good painting is really a love affair."
