Stephanie has been an assistant to master printmakers Ruth Leaf, Dan Welden, and Susan Rostow. She is currently on the faculty of St John’s University, Queens, NY, and the Art League of Long Island, Dix Hills, NY. Although her first life is printmaking, Stephanie also works in oils, mixed media, and jewelry. She finds inspiration in nature and organic images, sometimes realistic, sometimes abstract.
Nature has always been a source of inspiration in my work. I try to capture a feeling, an emotion when I am involved with a piece. There is a dialogue between the piece and myself. I enjoy experimenting with various images and various mediums- oil, printmaking, drawing, collage, etc because I feel different images can be better suited for different mediums, and pushing those limits opens up many possibilities.
