About Stephanie:


Stephanie paints realistic landscapes, still life, pet, and children’s portraits with a preference of oils. She uses a renaissance technique of applying thin glazes. In 2001, as a result of needing a creative outlet from a high-stress job, Stephanie found her way back to what brought her the most joy as a child, drawing and painting. While living in Atlanta she studied under several artists and quickly found her own painting style. When she moved to Huntsville, she continued to paint but stayed dormant from the art community. When her husband was deployed she decided to focus on her family. Now that her husband is state-side, Stephanie has awakened what was dormant for 7 years – reaching out to the painting community.
