Stéphanie Gauvin was born in Québec, Canada and from an early age, demonstrated a keen interest in illustration, encouraged by her family and teachers. She earned a Fine Arts degree in 1989, after which, the mountains of Canada`s west coast called her adventurous spirit. Being an avid skier, she settled into the quaint mountain town of Rossland B.C. and started a family.
Focusing on acrylic painting, Gauvin's work is indicative of her love for the outdoors. Gauvin`s bold use of composition, exciting choice of colors, and warm tones mark her self taught style.
A Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA), she has been painting professionally for 14 years.
Stephanie operates her own commercial Gallery space in Rossland BC and is now represented in galleries across Canada.
"As I view the world with a child`s eye, paint is the chosen medium of my expression and feeds my spirit with a sense of accomplishment and integrity. My goal is to translate the excitement I feel about life, into a tangible visual art piece.
Either working from photographs in my studio or painting out in nature, I illuminate the scenes with a bold exciting palette. My work is my play; my ego made visible." - Stéphanie Gauvin
