After completing her degree at McGill University, Stephanie left her native Montreal and has been living in various European countries for almost 20 years. She settled in Belgium in 2004 which is where the concept of the Accessible Art Fair was born. 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 has also curated for luxury brands - BMW, Montblanc, American Express - to name a few. Stephanie has also recently been an invited speaker at the International New York Times "Art For Tomorrow" conference, sharing a stage with Marina Abramovic and Jeff Koons, and has participated in a TedX talk.
