Stephanie on art, life, and moving forward: "I glean from all my experiences to inspire my paintings"
Stephanie, one of our guests at ANEW Place, will display her paintings at New Moon Café, 150 Cherry Street in Burlington, from July through September. She came to ANEW after a series of setbacks left her homeless: her work hours were cut, her car was totaled in an accident, and sickness left her with stacks of hospital bills. Now, she’s rebuilding her life--and painting while she's at it. She said she plans to use the money she earns from painting sales to buy a new car.
She spoke about her artistic process, her goals, and her perspective on homelessness. The conversation has been edited for length.
