Artshades! Bringing colour into your rooms
Dear beautiful fellow art lovers and creators!
Well my name is Steph and I have been creating since I was about 5 years old. Inspired by my beautiful mother who used to line our small hallway with brown paper so we could “draw on the walls!” (I am 1 of 10 children, so heaps of fun!!) This paper was changed weekly and encouraged, so for me, artmaking was always around and very much encouraged. I am a mother to 4 beautiful healthy children. We live on a sheep and wool property near Jugiong NSW.
I struggled at school in the “traditional academics”, so my art was my voice and I feel so blest to have this gift and ‘life tool’ to share with others. My Artworks evoke an emotion in the viewer, it ‘cracks’ a smile or creates a memory. I love colour and am inspired by my surroundings. When I walk into my studio and create, it makes my heart sing. I truly believe that this is what I am supposed to be doing. Sharing my joy of creating with others. This is what my ultimate career looks like as well as showing in uplifting authentic, supportive spaces. To be with people that share my vision. To also make good money from my creations! I have been working towards this for a long time.
I went on to study Art Education at COFA, UNSW for 4 years and loved every moment of it. I majored in Etching and Painting. I have been practising as a professional artist for the last 22 years and have had many solo and group exhibitions throughout NSW, ACT and one in QLD!
Have fun browsing my site. xx
Love Steph xx
