My name is Stephanie Brodene and I am an artist based in NYC. I see my work as a visual reminder of our innate connection to the natural world, and am inspired by the wonder and joy it is to be human intertwined within the beauty and magic of the natural world.

I believe the human experience is universal and to express this through creating is a gift. I pull inspiration from the abundance of time that I have reveled in nature in various places and in various ways, as both a child and an adult. I work to also incorporate fragments of my subconscious and dream worlds and to bring that vulnerable and magical joy into the present moment.

I work primarily with acrylic paint on canvas or paper, occasionally incorporating paper collage, ink, oil pastel, and pencil.
