Q. How long have you been creating for?
My whole life! I’ve always been interested in anything related to art and design, and thankfully I had parents that encouraged it.
Q. What inspires you?
I often find myself looking to the past for inspiration, whether it be books, posters, art, films, fashion, or decor. I’m astounded by the craftsmanship of previous generations, and the level of detail that was put into everything they created.
Q. What is involved in creating your art?
It usually involves quite a bit of research, planning, and several rounds of revisions. With each project I try to create something unique, and a little bit different than anything I’ve done before. This means each piece is custom-tailored to the people or spaces I’m creating it for.
Q. What is the best part about creating in Kitchener Waterloo?
I grew up in Kitchener Waterloo, and love that I am now able to make a mark on my hometown. The region has evolved so much, and it’s exciting to be a part of that. I get plenty of opportunities to meet people in the community and connect with them through art–it’s an amazing thing to experience!
Q. What would be a dream project for you?
I would love to do something educational involving wildlife and nature. There are so many fascinating things about the natural world that I would love to explore through art.
We hoped you enjoyed this blog post and that you will keep your eye out for Stephanie’s work around the city!
