Stephanie S. Smith - View Portfolio
Shattered by an art course that sought to crush her passion in art in favour of exam passing techniques, Stephanie moved her focus from Fine Art at Leeds to History at Newcastle University where she achieved a first class honours degree. The current praise for her art has given her renewed confidence and she is now looking at working in various media although her love for pencil and charcoal supported by the obvious authority of Da Vinci, Ingres and Michelangelo remains strong. The Expressionist painters, Cubism and Kalahari Art have also been highly influential.
Stephanie is currently working with children in Botswana and assisting at an BSPCA animal shelter. She says the diverse and beautiful population there is very inspiring and believes her artistic passion for portraiture and nudes will be strongly provoked by this experience.
