Stephanie is a native of Quebec,Canada.
She obtained a fine arts degree at Sherbrooke College in `89. Drawn to the mountains of British Columbia, she moved to the west coast In 1990. She chose to make her home,with her husband and two children, in the quaint little ski town of Rossland. She has been a full-time artist since 2003.
Stephanie interconnects the mountain lifestyle she lives with her creative self.;
“When you feel you are where you should be in life, then spontaneity and imagination can be used to their full potential...”
From her home studio,working mainly from photographs to create compositions, she illuminates the scenes with her own mix of vivid, rich, bold, and often contrasting colours. The use of acrylic paint allows for spontaneity in the brush strokes, looking for a feeling rather than perfection in the details.
Constantly driven by the thirst to learn, Gauvin has attended various workshops given by prominent canadian painters and feels greatly inspired and energized by the process; ”I believe evolving as an artist is a process and never really stops. By sharing knowledge among fellow artists, it heightens the creative vibe and provides only positive results,”
