Stephanie is a native of Thomasville, Georgia, and lives in Atlanta.
She received a B.A. in English from the University of Virginia and
an M.A. in Journalism from the University of Georgia.
Stephanie supplemented her English degree with classes in studio art, art history and architectural history at UVa. Her painting vocation began to take shape around 2011, as her three children entered their teen years and she found extended periods of time to work in her studio.
Her works are available for purchase at Gregg Irby Gallery, Atlanta; Libby Silvia Artstyle, Wellesley, MA; Fritz Porter Design Collective, Charleston, SC; Firefly, Thomasville, GA, and Chairish.com Stephanie's paintings have made their way to private collections ranging from Atlanta to Big Sky, MT; San Antonio, TX; Boston, MA; San Francisco, CA; Charlotte, NC; Dallas, TX; Palo Alto, CA; St. Louis, MO; and Charlottesville, Virginia. Photos of Stephanie's works have been featured in The Boston Globe (May 2016) and Washingtonian Magazine (March 2016) and popular blog The English Room (September 2016).
She also participates in the occasional art show, such as Spotlight on Art, held at Trinity School (Atlanta) .
Much of my work springs from the images that dance through my head on the cusp of sleep, a time when the brain lets down its guard and allows the subconscious to assert itself. After experimenting with multiple styles and media over the years, I have focused my painting in two general areas: hard-edged, bold, geometric acrylic paintings bursting with color, and softer, more realistic images painted in oil of found objects evocative of my native south Georgia.
