STEPHANIE GAY | SILK PAINTER
Born in Somerset but having lived in Berkshire for almost 30 years, Stephanie moved to Portishead in 2019 with her husband Andrew and miniature poodle Frankie.
Stephanie has specialised in painting on silk for more than 20 years. She exhibits her work widely through galleries, group and solo exhibitions. She has had work included in the Society of Women Artists annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. In 2017 she was named Landscape Painter of the Year by Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Life Magazine.
Stephanie’s work is inspired by nature and her latest work focuses on plants she has seen at botanic gardens around the UK.
“For me, painting is about not only capturing the visual appearance of my subject but, more importantly, the feelings it inspired in me.”
