Stephanie spent the first twenty years of her career as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner before transitioning over to a full-time, self-taught artist.
She donates all profits from her art towards providing education to Kenyan children. Since her first visit in 2000, she have been involved with the East African country. She believes that, by educating and empowering girls, we are able to change the face and the cycle of poverty. She returns yearly to oversee their progress and douse them with love and encouragement. She strongly believes in the concept of “pay it forward” and that is what her creative process allows her to do. Her years in pediatrics and art have confounded in the most magical way making their purpose even more profound.
Stephanie resides in Chilmark on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
