Stephanie has always had a dual interest in working both in abstraction and directly from nature. Her work in black and white etching helps prepare her for the rigorous drawing she uses to develop her botanical watercolors and her work in large colorful abstraction has helped her develop her sense of color. She puts a lot of energy into her work and loves what she does.
