Stephanie Pearson, Louisville Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement I grew up in Louisville, Ky and have been drawing or painting all my life, as a child I would spend hours going through old magazines collecting photos of all kinds of animals to draw from. When I got older I purchased my first camera and began began photographing animals, my favorite subjects. I am a wildlife enthusiast, I have always loved drawing and painting wild animals most of my work coming from my own photographs. Each year my husband and I travel around to different cities to tour different zoos, trying to capture that next piece. In high school art class I discovered pointillism and fell in love with the medium, I like how with each tiny little dot the picture just seems to come to life. It has been my dream to be able to share my artwork with others, hope you enjoy!
