Stephanie Burgee

Greetings and Welcome!

My name is Stephanie Burgee and I create paintings, illustrations, and commercial art that is fanciful and colorful. I explore a wide array of themes, but primarily concentrate in: fantasy, spirituality, world cultures, animals, and nature. 

I started my artistic journey very early in life, with the help of inspirational teachers who encouraged me to explore my creative interests, and to attend art magnet schools where I could further hone my craft. After graduating high school from Carver Center for the Arts and Technology in Maryland, I attended Rhode Island School of Design where I completed my undergraduate degree in fine art, specializing in apparel design. Throughout my 20’s, I kept returning to  two-dimensional mediums, and today I particularly enjoy the process of painting. There is a therapeutic quality I find in working with traditional, physical media. I specialize in acrylic, oil, gouache, ink, and pencil.

For a long time I have been interested in east asian design and culture, and having had the experience of working in China, and studying Chinese and Japanese culture, I often am inspired by these design aesthetics. I also enjoy doing research to imbue as much meaning as I can into each piece/project. I like to dive deep into a subject and learn new things about a topic as I paint, so books and internet resources are my constant companions!  My main intention is to provide images that look beautiful and balanced, incite positive emotions, and are healing for the viewer. 

In addition to being a creator, I am also a traveler. The feeling of excitement before boarding a plane to go somewhere new, to get a profound reward in the form of experience, is so wonderful. I am actively working to merge more of these experiences with my creative business in the future, as I feel that for all creators, exploration is essential to growth. Traveling is by far one of my favorite things to do.
