Stefanie Trow was born in South Yorkshire in 1982. She pursued her talent and love for art from an early age - encouraged by both parents, aspiring artists themselves. After graduating with a BA Hons Visual Arts, Stefanie spent a year travelling around the world, immersed in different cultures and meeting all walks of life, which some may view has undoubtedly influenced her art.
Stefanie has always been fascinated by the human form, using the body and face as a means to transcend her thoughts and feelings on the world around her.
Stefanie’s canvases have grown into a bold and vivid amalgamation of outdoor life experiences and time spent in the studio. Both figures and foliage merge and melt into one another, leaving us struggling to separate one from the other.
Stefanie wants the viewer to be intrigued, to draw them closer to the details of the work, discovering the layers of brushstrokes that have been built up to create each piece. At first the paintings appear semi abstract but if we keep looking a new world starts to take shape.
She has completed numerous private commissions, exhibited throughout the UK and most recently was asked to feature in Artist Baaba Maal’s music video “Gilli Men”. She now lives and works in Manchester.
