"Aloha! I am Stephanie: a Portland native, Hawaii based artist. Having always been a creative person, I love to be on the lookout for new things and places to feed the inspiration that is my “muse.” So, in 2010 I moved my life from the Pacific North West to the small town of Laie on the Windward side of Oahu. Almost immediately, my love for the islands and painting flourished, due to being surrounded by the immense tropical beauty and inspiration that nature provides. It has always been my goal to capture the energy of Aloha to share with others through my work, whether that's through my Tropical Hawaii paintings or my Pacific North West work. I see life in a kaleidoscope of vivid colors, and I love replicating them into my paintings! Currently I really enjoy working with acrylics, painting mostly on canvas, wood panels and surfboards. You can also catch my work printed on my line of pouches, pillows, phone cases, and trucker hats. If someone feels happiness and Aloha when they look at my work, then I've succeeded in my goal to share Aloha and good among this world. And that is what makes ME happy. - Aloha!"
