About The Artist
Stephanie is predominately a portrait artist living and working in Perth, Western Australia. Stephanie’s preferred medium is oil paint but occasionally uses other mediums such as oil and chalk pastels, acrylic, charcoal, graphite and ink. She paints her subjects from life, and with each of her portraits, produces not just a likeness but a carefully composed and considered study. Stephanie studied intermittently in London at the London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA) 2011-2016 attending the various short courses in classical art training, both drawing and painting portraits and figurative art studies.
Whilst living overseas in Angola, Africa and later in Kazakhstan, 2006-2017, Stephanie had the opportunity to participate in both group and solo exhibitions. Her aim was to contribute to the cultural landscape of the country in which she was residing and subjects included the indigenous people of that country and also the expat community. On returning home to Perth in 2017, she painted local landscapes in both oil and acrylic, and in addition began exploring printmaking, including lino cut, dry point and etching.
While living internationally, she had the opportunity to study part-time at the London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA), where she was able to extend her skills in portraiture painting and life drawing.
Stephanie now focusses on portraiture and practices classical techniques to produce contemporary portraits and figurative work. In 2022, she entered a portrait charcoal drawing in the Cannington Art Awards and received a Commendation. She has her studio in Midland, WA.
