Original Fine Oil Paintings, Archival Quality Limited Edition Giclee Prints, Original Photography

Stephanie Boyer is a contemporary realist painter who lives in Columbia, Maryland.  She received a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University. Subsequently, she studied drawing and painting at Howard Community College, and has also received extensive oil painting instruction from nationally known teacher and artist David Zuccarini.

In 1990, after her work was displayed and won an award in a juried show at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia, a New England gallery owner selected her work for representation in the Hoorn Ashby Gallery in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Her work was represented there for over 20 years until the gallery finally closed their doors in 2010.  She sold numerous paintings there and is represented in many private collections throughout the country, including the collection of Teresa Heinz Kerry (wife of John Kerry, former United States Secretary of State).

Stephanie is inspired by the beauty of nature and everyday objects. Her oil paintings remind her of the song from The Sound of Music called “These Are A Few of My Favorite Things.”  She enjoys photographing and painting the things that bring her great joy, such as flowers, seashells, sparkling blue glass, and ocean vistas.  She strives to create a sense of drama in her oil paintings by using strong sunlight and shadows, and incorporating reflective surfaces and vibrant colors.

Stephanie’s work has been exhibited locally at Howard Community College, Slayton House, Columbia Festival of the Arts, Columbia Art Center, and Howard County Center for the Arts.  She has also been selected to exhibit her work in juried shows sponsored by the Patuxent Art League at Montpelier Art Center in Laurel, Maryland, and the York Art Association Annual Juried Art Show in York, Pennsylvania.

Deborah Maklowski allowed me to video her colored pencil demo; she began drawing at 12:30 & stopped at 4:30. Besides checking out a students progress (18 seconds) and a lunch break she worked steadily. Imagine if the world paid artists by the hour… Please watch the videos carefully, Deborah lost her kneaded eraser, & we can’t find it, if you see it roll off the table let us know. ☺️ #innerworkingsouterjourneys #horsespiritartist See MoreSee Less

Allison Pasarew wraps, weaves & "sews" her sculptures using impossibly thin wire repurposed from today’s broken & replaced technology. Here Allison stands with her, very impressed, Dad.
