A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Stephanie had a long career as a textile designer working for renown companies Knoll International and Jack Lenor Larsen. She also had the unique opportunity to be one of the few selected to study with Larsen at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.

After moving to Gloucester, MA , Stephanie became intrigued with the Japanese folk art of painting and rubbing real fish or Gyotaku, an art technique that preserves a true record of the size of the species.

The process starts by painting a dead fish, placing paper directly onto it, then gently rubbing to produce an impression or monoprint. Throughout this journey, Stephanie has documented many species which are now under strict fishing regulations.

Her work is being represented in galleries throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine.
