The foundation of her artistic talent was fostered as part of her Maritimes upbringing, now the mountains of southeastern British Columbia inspire and nurture.
Introduced at an early age to painting, by her parents, she transitioned to textiles as a preferred medium. Post-secondary studies at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in Fredericton and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design readied her for work with a variety of theatrical companies, including Cirque du Soleil.
Interspersed with frequent world travel, she came west eleven years ago. A move from Banff, Alberta to be part of Nelson, British Columbia’s artistic, palpable vibe has rekindled her creativity through painting. Her theatrical experience influences her stylized semi-abstract perspective of the human form.
Stephanie has had numerous individual and group exhibitions throughout Canada and internationally.
