Sidelinger has used distinctive Visual Language to investigate topics that range from common icons, to the complexities of the human condition. His media ranges from multiple gouache techniques on paper, to encaustic and embroidery. A devout follower of William Morris, he makes his images to grace people’s environments, to bring an intrigue of design and the enigmatic questions of fine art to their daily lives. He is an artist/ designer/ educator/ architectural colorist/textile artist/ embroiderer and book artist. Stephen draws on these vast and varied disciplines to create his one-of-a-kind, fine, hand bound books of contemporary illuminated manuscripts, which are in public and private collections throughout the world. His works have distinctive personal vocabulary or visual language.
