Stephanie has always been creative and also has a passion for foreign missions. Her art varies in style and subject matter but American Western scenes are one of her favorites. She also loves to create paintings based on photographs she has taken during her various mission trips. Her art continuously evolves as she takes courses in Textiles, Photography, Digital Illustration, etc. She is clearly "one to watch!"
As a teenager, Stephanie was invited to intern at Eye Candy Gallery which led to summer employment while finishing high school.
