Stephanie grew up in Southern San Diego where she quickly recognized an inclination for and a deep need to create art. She comes from a creatively charged family and participates in family crafting vacations to focus on paper craft and scrapbooking. In college she studied and deepened her passion for photography and literature.
She began her illustration business in 2013 starting with ink line drawings, and quickly found a successful niche market in tattoo art. Stephanie has also been privileged to illustrate for authors, publications, interior decorators, cross-stitchers, home-owners, and business owners from all around the world. Stephanie has found her style, artistic voice, and joy through this business.
Her decision to work as a licensed artist with Spellbinders perfectly marries her love of illustration with paper crafting. She has a unique and raw approach to crafting and has been able to apply her edgy youthful style to reinvent the traditional crafters mold and appeal to a new younger crafting market.
