Painter/printmaker, Stephanie Joyce grew up along the Little River in Virginia. She was primarily influenced by her mother, an artist, and her father’s love of nature. Both fostered a deep rooted appreciation of the natural world.
In contrast, Stephanie moved to New York City where she attended Parson’s School of Design and earned her BFA. Following studies abroad in Paris, she worked as a stylist’s assistant and later as a designer and colorist.
After moving to North London, Stephanie began to focus on fine art. She set up a studio which overlooked rooftops and the Hampstead Heath and was intrigued by the misty, moody landscape of London and the English countryside. Her work began to take on an ethereal quality.
Stephanie now resides in Connecticut and lives on the Rippowam River which is a constant source of inspiration for her work. She is a guild member of Silvermine Guild Arts Center, and has exhibited at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Farum Gallery, Denmark, the Lockwood Matthews Museum, Carriage Barn Arts Center, Greenwich Arts Council, Artists Alliance of East Hampton, and New Century Artists Gallery, NY, NY.
