Artist Stephanie Michaud was born and grew up in St. Paul, MN. After attaining her B.F.A. in 1992, she was married and went into graphic design for over a decade. Finding little artistic fulfillment in that genre and when opportunity to go her own way presented itself after the birth of her first child in the early 2000s, she has since pursued art in a few media ever since.
Completely by accident, she decided to just give ceramics a try. Never having done it before, she had no idea what was in store. She fell in love w/ clay. MADLY in love! Now, she's continuing at a blinding pace to discover where that medium will take her and she's excited about the possibilities.
Her focus is completely on animals because of a love for them. Because animals are always honest. They have no pretense, they are who they are and intent is pure.
The driving force in her work is making art that makes people happy and smile. Whimsical is the best word to describe what she does. She LOVES color, and loves animals, so both of those elements will be stars in each and every piece. After decades of not really finding exactly what she was looking for in galleries and festivals, she set out to create what she was looking for and is having a ball-of-a-time doing it!
