Steph is a printmaker. She founded Bristol Print Room in 2017.

Steph learned the craft of printmaking after hours of dedicated practice, enrolling in courses across the UK. Steph has built up a professional portfolio of her work since, hosting workshops in intaglio and relief printmaking.

Three of Steph's prints were selected for Print International 2019. She was also selected to exhibit in the RWA Open 2020.

Beyond having a passion for art and creativity of all kinds, Steph has a lifelong love for nature. (Reflected by her decision to study Environmental Biology at Aberystwyth University.) ​Nature is always a source of inspiration for Steph and one that she welcomes into her art with open arms.
