Stephanie Kirkland is an artist painting to bring the outside in. Recognizing the power of green spaces to relieve stress and improve mental health, she channels her own never-ending ache to be outside in her paintings. She paints primarily with acrylics and draws inspiration from light, seasons, color, and texture. Her style mimics the fresh and raw energy found outdoors.
When she isn’t painting, you’ll find Stephanie hiking, planning her next road trip (usually to somewhere with mountains), and quietly taking note of the world around her. Long-term, she hopes to use her artwork to raise awareness of changes in—and the importance of protecting—our natural environment.
