Stephanie Mikulski, a local artist, was born in Connecticut in 1990, was a former psychology major and figure skating instructor before she decided to pursue art as a full time career.
From crayons and colored pencils to resin and acrylic, she has always had a deep love for anything artistic and creative. While working as a behavioral therapist in Connecticut, she incorporated art into her daily lessons with all of her students. She found that the art was very therapeutic and calming for not only the students, but for her in her own life as well.
With this idea emerging, she began exploring many different techniques and styles of artwork. Ranging from pop art to impressionistic to abstract to portraits using a variety of mediums: oil, acrylics, resin, and alcohol inks. To this day she has yet to come across a medium that she does not enjoy working with.
In 2016 she decided to commit fully and move across the country to pursue art full time. Since then she has taken her hobby and turned it into a career. She has taken on clients with all types of wants and likes to continue to challenge herself. She has never declined a commission piece. Some of the work she has done recently include: wedding portraits, iconic musicians, animal portraits, beachy resin work, and colorful scenic landscapes.
She says “I enjoy painting other clients stories and bringing their ideas and loved ones to life”. She continues to paint “life colorfully” and can’t wait to continue her growth in the world of art.
