'Using Kimonos and period costumes for her models, Rew has created an evocative style all her own. Her powerful, stunning, portraiture transcends that which we see and brings to light the hidden mystery that lies deep within.'
- Informed Collector 2014
Edinburgh based artist, Stephanie’s strength lies in being able to capture the female form in all her glorious guises, whether clothed or not, with side ward glances catching passing thoughts and emotions.
A graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, her work hangs in collections across the globe, including in The Royal Bank of Scotland’s headquarters in Edinburgh, Standard Chartered PLC in London, HongKong, Dubai and P&O Ferries.
Stephanie’s most recent move towards costume painting – everything from the corset and bustle to the kimono- is another element that strikes a chord with the viewer. The elegance and serenity captured is complimented by her lightness of hand to show delicate fabrics draped across the figures.
