Hey there!

I'm Stephanie, an artist helping homeowners like you fill your walls with meaningful artwork inspiring confidence, energy, and rest.

I believe the world is a more beautiful place when we each follow our deepest, most authentic callings.

When we listen to our hearts rather than others’ expectations.

When we swallow our fears to do bold and courageous things that matter.

When we shred perfection for honesty, and replace hesitation with grit.

But I often wonder—what’s stopping us?

The Story

Stephanie Kirkland Artist.jpg

My calling was right in front of me without me knowing it.

I grew up with a love of all things creative—writing, music, art. In college, I double-majored in English and painting. I never imagined myself doing anything else.

And then, long story short, a once-in-a-generation tornado led me to question what my calling was. So I stopped creating entirely, and instead spent a year teaching in a low-income school in rural Alabama. Because I wanted to do something impactful that wasn’t about me.

The problem was education isn’t my calling; creating is.

That realization was life-changing because I no longer create just for me; I create for you.

Maybe the word “calling” scares you.

I don’t blame you—it’s a big and lofty word, and it’s especially scary if you aren’t sure what yours is.

But I want you to know that you’re not alone. I’ve been there, and I know what that feels like.

But I truly believe that you have one waiting for you, a calling—you may just need some help finding it.

I believe art can help you do that.

What makes art powerful is that it comes from a place of raw, honest bravery.

You create something that is uniquely and wholly you, and you share it with the world without any guarantee of how others are going to respond.

Artists like me do this every day because we know that art speaks to people.

Because art is the essence of human experience.

Because art encourages us to have frank and open conversations about the things that move us and the things that we dream and care about.

I make art because I love it, but also because I believe in its power.

Because I believe that when you surround yourself with things that inspire you—with art that reminds you what it means to lean in to your truest and most authentic self—you’ll do it.

I hope my paintings encourage you to feel confident in your own skin—to grab life in your own unique way and to rest in your own voice. To take chances on whatever is calling you.
