The dramatic, wild landscapes, lonely mountains and bracing seascapes that Stephanie chooses to paint, aim to snatch as much of the sensation in that environment as possible. Stephanie is a palette knife painter and almost all her oil or acrylic work is done by palette knife. She likes to work with lots of colour and if working on canvas, texture on the canvas becomes a big part of the final piece, sculpted or smoothed with the knives.
Her work is a reflection of images and experiences she's collected, of places she's visited or read about. One of Stephanie's favourite things is to hear about other people’s adventures and stories in these places so they might shape her own experiences and understanding. A suggestion of the textures of the environment is offered by the textures presented on the canvas.
Stephanie has undertaken numerous private commissions as well as having success selling her work in Swiss ski and mountain resort, Verbier via Nanuq gallery. She has a broad and international clientele one of whom is Sarah, Duchess of York
Stephanie's work can be found internationally in homes and businesses across UK, USA, Russia, Switzerland, France, Australia, Ireland, Netherlands and South Africa and is currently being used in the Berghaus ‘Time to get out’ marketing campaign. Stephanie is a self-taught artist who for now, calls Belfast her home and likes to explore the Island she lives on with her young family and dog Belle. Stephanie welcomes commissions, and offers live painting demonstrations. If this is something you are interested in, please use the Contact tab at the top of the page.
