He was the son of Heinrich Stech a painter from Lubeka. In 1636, together with his family he moved to Gdańsk.

After the death of his first wife, he married Adelgunda, the daughter of Nikiasz Wulf. He had five children from his first marriage, and four from his second. In 1662, he became the Master Artisan on the basis of his artwork: The Calling of St. Andrew (Powołanie św. Andrzeja) and Croesus throwing himself in the fire (Krezus rzucający się w płomienie). In 1667, he received Gdańsk citizenship. In 1673, he became a juror. From 1677, he worked for King John III Sobieski of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. His brother was also a painter.
