STEPHANIE LANE


Stephanie Lane is a self taught artist from Edmonton, Canada. She has been a full time artist for the past 5 years and runs a studio called “Abstract Underground Studio” where she has painted the space to look like a giant abstract painting.

Growing up on the Canadian prairies, she developed an appreciation for vivid colours, wide open spaces and horizon lines (and also long winters doing art when it was too cold to go anywhere!)

Stephanie first started sketching at a very young age, but started to move forward with abstract concepts in the last decade.

She is inspired by textures - man made and natural, vibrant colours, horizon lines, barbed wire, old wood, ancient stone, peeling plaster, architecture, and emotion.

Her work is as varied as her inspirations and never wants to become limited to one style. “Forty years ago, my grade four teacher called me “scatterbrained”. I saw this as a bad thing for many decades... but she was right, just using poor wording to describe an inspired mind. My thoughts are fluid and always changing, finding inspiration in endless sources. If I am moved by lines or shapes, I focus on that. If I am inspired by an old peeling wall, then that is what dominates the substrate. I couldn’t imagine spending my life painting one style... my style is changeable and fluid and organic.”

This approach has brought her to produce a varied body of work in oils and cold wax, acrylics, and resin.

She also teaches art as supplementary income stream. “My students inspire me to no end, even the one who hasn’t created art since childhood. They all have gifts to share, and it’s a joy to watch their varied approaches to art.”
