Hi, my name is Stephanie Richey. I love creating. I have been creating things with my hands ever since I was a kid. I started off painting prefired ceramic figurines. When my husband and I got married and were headed out to drive to Alaska, I decided to teach myself how to crochet. When I started having kids I decided to start sewing, and I made my kids clothes over the years. Now that they are older they don’t seem to want hand made clothing, but I still enjoy making my own clothes sometimes. Then I met a friend who taught my kids art lessons. I decided to try painting and learned that I love it! I started out painting with acrylics. But I purchased several books and one was on watercolor. I didn’t like watercolor as much so I started with that book. I now love watercolor. It is my preferred painting medium. My friend also taught online classes, so I took many of her courses, and then started taking as many online watercolor courses as I could find and had time for. Throughout these courses I have learned that I love painting nature. I love being in nature, so I guess this is a natural extension of that love. I also believe that there are a lot of other people who love nature, and would love to decorate their home with beautiful nature. I was one of those people, but could never afford to purchase art, so I also believe that it should be more affordable than what I have been able to find. There are obvious costs to materials, time, printing, postage etc. But it is my goal to keep my prices down in a range that hopefully is more affordable for more people. I hope you take the opportunity to check out my shop, read about my paintings, and enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds us all!
I don't like it when I get so busy I don't have time to paint.
My latest blog post is my opportunity to reflect on some recent experiences. You can read it on my website, link in my bio!
