Currently a Boston based artist, Stephanie grew up in the Midwest, the child of a single working mother who frequently moved from small town to small town throughout the 1970s. As an emerging mixed media artist, immediacy and experimentation are essential to Stephanie’s work, and she tries to reduce a given subject to its most basic idea without sentimentality. She uses bold color, simplicity and strong lines, sometimes incorporating collage to add a bit of black humor and spontaneity. Recent group exhibitions include Small Works Salon 2015: Word + Image Chandler Gallery, Cambridge; Reclamation II: Emerging Female Artists, The Nave Gallery, Somerville; Small Works 2015, The Bromfield Gallery, Boston, MA. Using vintage dolls, spraypaint, plaster and alcohol inks, I’ve been working to capture the lost-in-place feeling of the 1970s latchkey kid generation.
