Her idea was to give a high end showcase to unknown artists and make them accessible to a discerning audience. Now in its 11th year, Stephanie is proud of how it has developed into a recognisable brand while still offering opportunities to international artists and art buyers. Stephanie is also an art consultant for corporate clients has also curated for luxury brands - BMW, Montblanc, American Express - to name a few.
