Member Spotlight: Stephanie Lawhorn
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 create 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.
