I work as full time artist, curator and educator.
Working directly with nature Stef makes monoprints and folded books that create an edge from which the organic accident and intentional mark can be read. The plants tell their own narratives and the reader interacts through viewing, holding and folding. In her Rock Armour pieces using painting and printmaking Stef explores the landscape surrounding her studio in Staithes with motifs based on the sea wall defence. Recent work combines the external language of nature with the internal language of textile design and quilting.
