Competent in all medias, oils, watercolors, pastels and graphics: she has exhibited in one man shows and groups, nationally and internationally, France, Bangkok, and Holland and throughout the United States. In 1989 she moved to Barbizon, France to become involved in the “New Barbizon School of Arts” with artist Jacques Harvey.
While in France Stephanie was commissioned to paint various commercial and private pieces, which included portraits and murals and copies of famous artist throughout history. At this time, The American Animation Co. based in Los Angeles asked her to travel to Bangkok for a three-week period to teach traditional background painting for the upcoming Warner Bros. animation show “Tiny Toons”.
Upon returning to Barbizon France Stephanie had sold several pieces to a buyer. Unbeknownst to them, they would be married and eventually, both would become dual citizens of their new countries.
They moved to California on the request of the licensing division of Warner Brothers.
