BRIEF HISTORY: Stephen grew up in Ballina NSW, and completed his
schooling at Alstonville High School in 1994. Since that time he has gone
on to pursue his love of Art and Computer in the professional field.
After finishing School, Stephen went on to study Art - in particular Comic
Art and Figure Drawing.
Stephen was one of four partners who started the comic magazine Australian
Comics Monthly (ACM). ACM grew as a publication and through its exposure,
Stephen was able to meet and learn skills from many of the biggest names
in comics. The feedback he received from artists like Jim Lee, Mark Silvestri,
Dale Keown (just to name a few) was pivotal in his growth as an artist.
1996 saw the birth of The Comicbook Workshop, an extension of ACM. This
was a great time where Stephen, and some of the artists and writers he
worked with, had the opportunity to share their skills and experiences
through a series of powerful workshops.
The next few years saw Stephen working on an animated Television Commercial,
as well as teaching at Schools, Universities and Private Workshops. During
this time Stephen's interest in computers escalated and he begun to take
a new direction, leading him into the Graphic Design & Web Development
With full-time employment in the Web Development field since 1998, there
has been some fantastic opportunities for Stephen to apply his design
background with amazing results.
