Drawing by Stephanie
Years of experience as an artist, gallery assistant, art educator, custom framer, mother and animal lover have eventually led to a body of work capturing priceless memories to be passed down for generations.

CUSTOM DRAWINGS FROM A PHOTOGRAPH
a gift that will live for generations...
I'm a commission based professional Freelance Artist and Custom Framer. I create hand drawn portraits of all types, with experience drawing people, pets, architecture and more.

Art has a powerful way of reminding us how precious our lives are. I have always known I was an artist. I have felt, seen and understand the incredible power of “Art” to unite, inspire and recreate moments. After spending a year in Australia through a study abroad program in photography, I started to really understand how light and shadow create our illusions and while I enjoyed creating beauty by controlling light, photography didn’t fulfill my desire to share what I wanted to share and express. I now use photography as a reference for my drawings and paintings of people, pets, places and memories that make up our lives.
Most of my work in the past few years has been commissioned, which has given me a unique voyeuristic prospective. I have had opportunity to participate while I tell the stories of others, enjoying what I do and bringing joy through my art. I adore the beautiful simplicity of love in relationships and have the power to bring that feeling back to my patrons. Drawing fills me with a sense of accomplishment and integrity and has proven a most amenable vehicle for translating inner feeling to visual reality.
My recent series consists of charcoal and chalk drawing “head-shots”. I started this series with Trump and his fantastic facial expressions and branched out to characters, actors, comedians and athletes.

FAMILIES, WEDDINGS & ENGAGEMENTS
After years of experience as a Gallery Assistant and Custom Frame Designer, I understand how pricey Custom Framing can be. To combat this I only draw in standard sizes and offer custom fitting, quality matting and molding for at a low cost for my patrons
