My name is Stefanie Chen. I’m 23 years old. I was born and raised in Queens, New York.

During my freshman year at Stony Brook University, I had taken an Intro to Drawing course. It fulfilled an elective credit but I wanted to continue taking more art classes so I added a studio art minor to my degree.  I took an Intro to Painting course as well as an Intro to Ceramics course my sophomore year to explore more mediums. I fell in love with clay so I chose to continue my study in ceramics. I completed all levels of ceramics at my university. My Independent Study piece “Home Sweet Home” received the Staller Award for Excellence.

I have always been curious and I love to teach myself new skills every day. I picked up styling my friends for shoots as well as doing their makeup here and there. I learn a majority of everything I know from watching YouTube videos. I taught myself how to sew, how to do hand lettering and calligraphy and many more skills by myself.
