Stephanie Lawhorn is a modern contemporary/abstract artist inspired by the colors and textures viewed in nature as seen through the lens of her Christian faith. She often states that ‘God is the Greatest Artist’ and seeks to share the beauty of the Lord’s Creation through her paintings. Each piece, while consistent in the use of texture and/or vibrant color, becomes an entity of its own depending on the message the work is meant to convey. Stephanie explores a variety of mediums as she feels that developing these ‘foundations’ helps improve her skills over time. Her paintings, the medium she is most known for, are created in heavy acrylics with palette knives and her own fingers often being used to created the resulting textures. Although she currently works as an art educator in Texas, she herself is self-taught and enjoys exploring the creative freedom of her own intuitions.
