Born in Yorkshire, Stevens studied painting at Bradford College of Art (1952–1957), where he was a contemporary of David Hockney, and at the Royal College of Art (1957–1960). He taught for a period at Hornsey College of Art, and was Gregory Fellow in Painting at Leeds between 1974 and 1975. Stevens started printmaking in 1970 and became highly skilled in a variety of techniques, including mezzotint. It is through this medium that he was more generally known in the later stages of his career, which was cut short at the early age of 51. He was made an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1983. He exhibited his work internationally, as well as in London. He continued to show at the Royal Academy up to and including the year of his death. Stevens was a great lover of the countryside and natural forms were his favoured subject.
