Growing up in Minneapolis, Stephanie learned to sew and created elaborately detailed outfits.

Returning to the Midwest she enrolled at UW/Madison, earning a BA in history and Italian literature. While studying in Bologna she traveled and took photos throughout Europe and Africa.
After college Stephanie considered how historic events have influenced fashion and how fashion has effected history. Her interests and skills merged in costume design. She returned to Minneapolis and began her career in the costume shop at the Guthrie Theater.
New York was next. Stephanie designed costumes for stage, styled print ads and TV commercials, studied painting and drawing at the Art Students League, and theater design at the New School. She worked for the acclaimed commercial directing and producing team, Steve and Linda Horn where a unique perspective and stylish aesthetic were essential. She developed her eye, recognizing the impact of nuance and detail in all forms of modern dress, haute couture, and period costume.
Stephanie has lived and worked in Europe and throughout the USA continuing to design for theater, film and episodic TV. Currently she and her family live in Brooklyn, NY.
