Camp Stephie Origins
I have been teaching art since I was a teen, helping out in my aunts elementary school classroom. I have an insatiable fascination with how things are made, and hands that can’t keep still. Together this pairing makes me an excellent sharer of craft skills. Helping people young and old realize their crafty goals brings me such satisfaction. I love helping people fall in love with making art.
Drawing upon the inspirations of patterns, texture, and understated grace, I design and fabricate enduring modern heirlooms that are smart, bold, and elegant. The rhythms of nature, use of negative space, elements of design, and themes of bygone eras drive my work. Each piece is expertly handcrafted in my Vancouver studio and has a sense of playful sophistication.
I excel at creating a cozy atmosphere with my softly scented aromatherapy candles, oils, sprays, and mineral bath salts. Like a loving hug, they envelop you in nurturing serenity.
