LEARNING TO LISTEN and TO SEE
Stephanie's painting process is a balance between developing skills and developing inner sensitivity. Starting with ideas of what she wants to express, she allows those ideas to unfold by listening to what she's drawn to, recurring images, words, etc.
Her work is mostly divided between oil and watercolor, with a bit of mixed media showing up at times. She has exhibited throughout the United States and is a contributing writer/artist with New York’s Center for Art Law and London's Institute of Art and Law. Her article Confessions of an Artist and a Lawyer discusses her experience balancing the practice of law and painting: https://itsartlaw.org/2018/06/18/confessions-of-an-artist-and-a-lawyer-practicing-art-law-one-trial-and-painting-at-a-time.
Stephanie's solo show at the Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor in Manhattan features her Elicit Justice series.
