I became familiar with Stephanie's work through her donations to the Greater Huntsville Humane Society. When she mentioned pop-art magnets as Christmas gifts, it was like a sign from the Gift List gods. The hardest part of the process was choosing my favorite photo, but Stephanie helped me through every step of the process. From initial sketches to competed product, I saw pictures of each stage, and knew it would be a beautiful result. My friends love their magnets dearly, and one said it was "the most thoughtful present ever."
I would absolutely recommend Stephanie! Stephanie is so organized & easy to work with, and she makes it so easy to turn a photo into a gorgeous piece of art. I already have plans of future presents, as well as artwork for my own walls.
My best friends truly loved the magnets. One even said it was "too good for her fridge" and has placed on the windowsill over her kitchen sink so she can look at it multiple times a day. :)
Joe has seen his Christmas gift, the picture of his dog you painted, and he loves it. We have shown it to everyone and they think it's really good and it really looks just like Rounder. We have shown it to one of his friends and he wanted your phone number so he could get you to paint a picture for him. He was so impressed with the picture you painted for me. I hope you hear from him soon.
Being a frequent attendee of dog shows, I am very familiar with a number of artists who frequent these shows to promote their business. I have engaged many in conversation but never seriously considered commissioning a painting. What sparked my interest in working with Stephanie was her interest in the subject and why such a painting would be meaningful to me. I had a good picture for her to work from, however, she was interested in seeing different pictures from different angles. She wanted to truly understand the subject and to capture his very essence in her work.
The result was absolutely smashing! My boy is so life-like that he seems to jump off the page. Her ability to capture depth, wrinkles, shading, expression, etc is phenomenal. As a result, I have commissioned her to do a second painting for me - and I can’t wait to see it!
