Truly understanding another's perspective is a rare gift. This kind of empathy can occur only where open storytelling and receptiveness coexist. These inspired moments are about meaningful communication, and for Stephanie, illustration is one of the ways she speaks. In her work she tells stories of the beauty and vitality of the world around us, the spirit and character of the animals within it, and the need for precious interplay between humans and their environment. Her tales are full of wonder, details, and lots of heart.
