As an artist, Stéphanie Williams wants to share her language, not her eroding French or her syntax-challenged English, but her transcription of the effect of nature, people, creatures, environments, sounds and energies on her. Her process is mainly experiential. She sketches copiously; she immerses herself in her surroundings; and she welcomes incidents that frustrate, twist, drain, and, most likely, rejuvenate during the making of each piece. Beeswax with its unique smell, feel, and translucent quality has made its way into her work.
Born and raised in Normandy, France, Stéphanie has lived and worked in nine cities and three countries. Today, she is an artist, designer, teacher, food cart owner, beekeeper, mother and artist, happily calling Beverly home. She always packs a sketchbook. These humble journals hold some of her fondest memories. Her works derive from such sketches, lucky encounters and experiments.
