Stephanie McGee has been working in 3-Dimensional paper creations since early childhood. She has constructed freestanding works of art from paper, cardboard, matte board, recycled items and found objects. She grew up learning techniques in origami, collage, 3-D paper construction, and paper filigree (quilling).
Stephanie attended the fine arts program at Shepherd College, now Shepherd University. After two years, she moved on to Virginia Commonwealth University earning a Graphics Arts Degree with a Concentration in Illustration.
As Stephanie's young family grew, her career led her to many different venues which sparked her artistic imagination and inspired her to further her skills in teaching others. She has designed children's programming, displays and promotional materials for public and private libraries, and has taught Early Education and Elementary Art in private schools and art centers. She has even dabbled in professional storytelling while designing and creating props and costumes for her performances. In 2014, Stephanie joined the Manassas Art Guild and began publicly showing her work.
Since her early years, Stephanie's experiences, teaching in particular, have greatly influenced her artwork by inspiring her with the whimsy and playfulness of the children she has had the privilege to know and work with.
