"Steffanie is brave, visionary, possesses a strong and proven organizational intelligence which is balanced by her quiet, persevering leadership style. She brings about positive results and a process to match."

Creative Director + Designer + Illustrator

I have a passion for solving problems visually. My best work is done when I can fuse creative perspectives and visual strategies to create meaningful solutions. I integrate illustration or photography to help tell the story and visually engage the viewer. 

From my days at small shops and leading brand agencies, to my years wearing multiple hats for Art with Heart, I have designed, illustrated, and produced a range of materials, balancing story and visual impact. Below you will find a smattering of work samples that will give you a taste of my style. CLICK ON A CATEGORY BELOW to see more samples.

Illustration Styles

Illustration clients enjoy choosing from a range of visual styles, depending on their needs. This page showcases the styles in which I work confidently. I am equally comfortable creating textured illustrations for full page advertisements, posters, magazines, packaging, or books—as well as one-color spot illustrations for newspapers, signage, or logos.
