Artist, art director, adventurer. Based in Toronto, in the great white north, Stephanie's art involves finding beauty in the grotesque, from installations made entirely of human teeth, to photographing abandoned buildings, to re-appropriating left-overs for time-based sculptures, and always with a dash of humour.

She is also a member of Ars Subterranea, a creative preservation group, and has a special interest in shrinking cities and the fate of New Orleans.
and as ex-fluxer:
She was found at a very young age clutching a pinwheel underneath the Log Flume at the South Carolina State Fair. Since then she has become a magician’s assistant at the Coney Island Sideshows, a trapeze apprentice and roustabout for the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, a connectrix /media pundit, and a resident of the Flux Factory, where she does a lot of decorating, arguing and event planning. She also lends her various talents (editing, costume-designing, press-releasing, accomplicing) to worthy institutions such as the New York Press, the Madagascar Institute, the Daredevil Opera Company, and Dark Passage.
She is mostly interested in finding and cultivating allies, and fostering collaboration among artists, performers, creators, inventors & the many fascinating people she often finds or spies on from afar.
