Stephanie was born and raised on Long Island, NY. Choosing computer programming as her first career, her passion for drawing and painting prompted her to pursue an education in Visual Art.

She later moved to New Jersey obtaining a degree as a Graphic Designer and established the graphic design firm SMA Designs.
She has participated in many local and national exhibitions, is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of New Jersey and a Resident Member of the Salmagundi Club. Stephanie’s work has been featured in Plein Air Magazine, Southwest Art, American Artist and American Art Collector magazines.
“Working in oils, I paint impressionistic landscapes, floral and figurative compositions. My intention is to produce work which creates energy and movement that will resonate with the viewer.”
Stephanie currently resides in Milton, Georgia working both in her studio and outdoors on location. Her work can be seen through many fine galleries along the east coast.
