Stephanie’s work deals with issues of identity, nationalism, politics, and othering. While her earlier work has been immersive & performative in a more traditional sense, her films have sought to further think about performance as a function of documentary.
She gained her BA in Fine Art in the U.K. before crossing the pond to receive an MFA in Computer Art from the School of Visual Arts.
Stephanie’s work has been shown in festivals and galleries across Europe and the U.S. She has worked as an editor and director for five years for various documentaries and organizations such as Art21 which is broadcast on PBS.
In 2017 she was a fellow in the UnionDocs Collaborative Studio where she studied documentary practices through scholars and filmmakers while collaboratively creating two short films. She also received a 'Made in NY Media Center with IFP' Fellowship which is sponsored by the Mayor's department of Media and Entertainment. She's currently developing a feature film about the NYC's Vernon C. Bain Correctional Center, the world’s largest floating prison.
