The Government Art Collection holds a comprehensive group of Stokoe's prints from the 1960s and 1970s. Stokoe was influenced by the work of American abstract artists in the 1960s who exploited the properties of colour, particularly the optical effects of certain juxtapositions and the interplay between colour and form. He preferred screenprinting which lends itself to the creation of hard edged areas of colour. It is understood that he made his first screenprint in 1967. Michael Stokoe was a member of the Printmakers' Council.
