Art Commissions



Day One

Dr. Sharon J. Lechner of Ashville, NC

"Stephanie loves people and learns the truest, most honest version of them.  In the portrait she made of me holding my one-day-old daughter in the hospital, Stephanie captured the weight and wonder of that moment.  She's technically skilled - the portraits looks just like the photograph snapped at the time - but what's even more delightful is the peacefulness, the newness and the adoration that comes through.  I love it and it will be a cherished part of our home for the rest of our lives."

Melissa L. Dornan of Davidsonville, MD

"I commissioned Stephanie to create what turned out to be an absolutely beautiful abstract painting of a wave for my husband as a wedding present, although selfishly, I love the painting as much as he. Throughout her process, she often involved me to ensure that she captured what I wanted in the end. The painting now hangs in our formal dining room and is a focal point in our home. I highly recommend Stephanie as a professional, talented artist and would confidently trust her with future art requests."

Growing Up

Melissa Mehl of Laurel, MD

"Stephanie sketched our son's portrait for his second birthday, and her art brings such joy to everyone who sees it.  The drawing is so marvelous, it captures the angelic features we see in him now while also showing a glimpse of how he might look in years to come.  Stephanie is a brilliant portrait artist, and we look forward to her sketching both our children again as they get older."
