“My work is created directly from life. With light as the primary factor, I realize a successful painting is not only about subject matter, but how I communicate the mood and energy I feel during the creation of the piece. I know I was successful when I return to a setting and see my painting come to life.”
Stephanie’s work is created alla prima, a wet-on-wet technique used when paintings from life, and evokes an energy which can only be captured by the immediacy and spontaneity of the moment.
