Stephanie Bauer’s oil paintings reflect the balance between the emotional effect of color and the simplicity of landscape. Inspired by small black and white photographs she allows herself the freedom to explore the juxtaposition of color and natural borders. Her work is luminous and peaceful.
She has illustrated numerous children books, taught art and art history, painted giant community murals, designed sets and curated gallery shows. She has traveled extensively and her work reflects her respect and love for beauty in the natural world.
