Stephen St. Francis Decky has been creating an ever-evolving cast of characters on a perpetually-shifting landscape for many years; these characters are born in acrylic paintings then later brought out into the real world as hand-sewn dolls. The dolls are then placed on sets and filmed back into that other world.

Stephen's paintings, films and multi-channel animated videos have appeared in galleries, festivals and collections nationally and internationally. He completed the Studio Diploma Program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2011 and is currently working on his Masters Degree from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
