Stephanie's innate need to create has led her through the use of many media including drawing, felting, painting, photography and clothing design.

Stephanie completed the Associate Diploma of Arts in Fashion (1989 - 1990)  at the ACT Institute of Technical and Further Education. This included studies in Design and Textiles, and Stephanie was awarded the Institute Medal for Outstanding Achievement. Also during her studies she was a State Finalist in the Australian Wool Corporation's "Young Designer Awards" for which she received a Special Commendation.

Her studies led her to a career in the Fashion Industry learning many aspects of the industry and finally settling in Melbourne working as a contract pattern maker and then as the in-house pattern maker for a large designer label.

 

Now, after seven years of designing and making felted products, Stephanie has returned to her clothing design roots.  Inspired by the simple elegance of ponchos, ruanas and scarf variations, Stephanie now creates a range of outer garments which are primarily made from luscious merino wool.
