Stemming from a traditional photographic approach, Stephanie's work spans the expanded field of photography and includes darkroom and experimental film processes, hand-built cameras, and digital-analogue techniques. Landscape is a recurring foundation for her in which to address the connection of land to history, memory, and the human experience while bringing awareness to the impermanence of our environment. Growing up on Lake Huron in northern Michigan, her interest in the land began while photographing the dynamic nature of her home.

Since 2016, Stephanie has led the photography concentration at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She received an MFA degree in photography and related media from Purdue University. The following six years, she relocated to Istanbul and taught photography and video courses at Sabanci University. She spent much of that time traveling throughout Europe and parts of the Middle East, and was an artist in residence at the Tsarino Foundation in Bulgaria, Arteles in Finland, and Listhus in Iceland.

Recently, she exhibited at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, the SoHo Photo and Amos Eno Galleries in New York; and the VAE in North Carolina. She was featured in Art Maze Magazine’s Summer Issue 13.
