About The Artist...
Stephanie was born in Memphis Tennessee, in the 1960's, and grew up in Upstate NY.
It was at the early age of 8 that she began to express her creative skills through drawing sketching and painting. By the age of 11 she was selling pet portraits to her friends at school. Being born in the 60's and growing up in the 70's, Rock-n Roll was a heavy influence in her life, and as a kid, she would sneak in her big sister's room and play records and daydream over the album cover art, and wondered how they "did" it. I think those early days would become prevalent in her work later down the road...
Stephanie has participated in numerous group exhibits, solo exhibits, festivals, Studio Tours, pop-up galleries, art markets and such since the year 2001 to the present day. From NYC, to Jersey City, Brooklyn, Asbury Park and Miami, Her work has been favored by collectors both private and corporate alike. Stephanie's work has been published in various publications, and is most known for her Pussy cat characters, Drag Queen Portraits, Psychedelic Abstracts, and love for fantasy, rock-n roll and the ridiculous and sublime.
