Stephanie's art draws from a diverse array of artistic influences. From her aunt who recreates masterpieces, to her previous art teachers and to the Master Artists such as Edward Hopper, Paul Cezanne and Claude Monet. Like these classical artists, Stephanie enjoys highlighting the beauty of simple, often ignored ordinary moments in time, while infusing them with her own enhanced styles and color choices. Like a custom Instagram filter, she infuses her own bolder tastes taking inspiration from contrasting colors and patterns, often used in comic books, anime and illustrations in children’s literature.
While Stephanie has experimented with mediums such as acrylics, pastels, and watercolor, oils and art markers are her preferred mediums. The pigmentation from oils give her paintings a sense of timelessness. The oil medium also allows her to build up layers of paint to convey texture and depth. Stephanie’s use of art markers allows her to achieve results like that of watercolor and the vibrancy of anime.
Through her landscapes such as shown in “Stairway to Heaven” and “Staying on Track”, Stephanie deliberately amplifies both color and shading in her work to elicit anywhere between a whimsical, joyful and a dramatic response. Using bold highlights and shadows, Stephanie's technique brings alive scenes that can appear real and surreal simultaneously.
Stephanie wishes that people feel inspired and uplifted when experiencing her work. She hopes to bring vacations to viewers – even though they’re only a few minutes long!
Stephanie attended Syracuse University and earned a B.S. degree in Accounting. After six years working in Public Accounting at a major Accounting firm, she decided to pursue her passion for art.
