This little-known but talented artist was born in Mechelen, where he was the son of a goldsmith and the younger brother of a painter on glass and panels. Stinemolen himself, who is known through only four drawings, may have also worked professionally as a goldsmith and jeweller; certainly his second wife was the widow of a silversmith, which points to a continued association with that world. He was registered as an apprentice with his brother in Mechelen in 1533, but by the mid-1550s he was in Rome, and had probably already been there for some years. He probably remained in Italy until the late 1560s and by 1567 he had returned to the Netherlands, where he married his second wife in Antwerp. In 1585 he returned to Mechelen, where he died.
