Stephenson was a known downtown artist, whose work, though realistic, employed distinctive color and wonderful light, with the painter’s hand and mind clearly present. Stephenson’s career was with US Army Intelligence, where he was a Sargent Major. He traveled the world, living in Shanghai, Afghanistan, and other places. His work reflected his spiritual seeking in both eastern and western traditions, as did his home and stance toward the world.
