“Working with Stephanie to create this piece was a dream, because she really brings her clients in on the creative process. Before she started work on the painting, we worked together to come up with a feel for the piece, how it would fit into my home, and what my memories of the scene conjure for me. Once we had a plan for the piece, she began work on it, and checked in with me throughout her creative process to give me an opportunity to make any changes (there was literally one change I offered. She was absolutely brilliant with her execution of the piece) while she worked. Once she was done, she delivered the piece to me, and again offered to help me find a good place for it in my home! This piece means so much to me because it’s of a scene I loved from a trip that meant the world to me, and to have it produced in such a gorgeous medium with her impressive eye and talent with a brush meant the world to me.”

“The commissioned piece blew me away. Stephanie’s process emphasized capturing an understanding of my vision, presenting preliminary sketches and color directions. In turn, I fully entrusted the rest to her recommendations and talent. The result is stunning, beautiful and a testament certainly to her talent, but also to the care which Stephanie took to understand what it was that I was hoping for as an end result. It should be noted that as an anniversary gift, my wife has probably never been as moved by a gift in four decades of anniversary gifts.”
