Stephanie is a distinguished Berkeley artist. Her paintings and works on paper are in many permanent collections, including the San Francisco Fine Arts Museums, The Smithsonian, Philadelphia Museum, Brooklyn Museum and Crocker Museum in Sacramento. She studied at UCLA with Elmer Bischoff, Diebenkorn and Nathan Oliveira.
Stephanie says “My desire as a painter is to hold the tension and balance between structure, reason, and intuition – the architect in me and the dancer in me – and to give form to what I cannot name. With paint and substance, I’m trying to build a place where unexpected associations and resonance can occur. I am deeply stimulated by nature In a broad sense – I want to show both the concrete and the intangible world - what you can touch and what you can imagine. The essence of life, its richness, beauty and chaos informs my painting.
