Stephanie is an artist and educator, who received her Masters of Arts in Art Therapy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her B.A. in Art Studio from the University of California Davis. Stephanie is currently a full-time Academic Advisor at SAIC, and also the co-founder of The Object Press, an object-based publication that curates and publishes art and design research. Stephanie’s therapeutic practice is informed by DBT, mindfulness, and somatic experiencing, and focuses on exploring intersections of personal identity and cultural narrative through a body-centered and trauma-informed approach. These conversations also influence her painting practice, where themes of vulnerability, the body, and representations of identity and difference also emerge.
