He lived as an artist in Biel, during which time, he painted landscapes in gouache – his paintings of St. Peter's Island in Lake Biel were highly thought of. He later worked as an art dealer in Strasbourg, and from 1808 operated a lithography business in Munich. He also worked as a gilder and sculptor in wood and marble for a church in Boécourt.[1][2]

He was the father of composer Joseph Hartmann Stuntz (1793–1859) and painter Maria Elektrine von Freyberg (1797–1847).[1][2]
