Artist Biography




I graduated from UC in 2016 with a Masters in Painting and have continued a regular art practice, focussing on the phenomenality of crowds and the painting of aggregate figures, including Asian figures and Bathers. I won the first ever Art Show in Christchurch in 2014 and have a portrait in the National Portrait Gallery. I have also achieved finalist in various National Art competitions. I belive this season of my work will be the most significant.

Stephanie McEwin Curriculum Vitae
DOB 21/04/1957

Introduction :My name is Stephanie McEwin and I have recently achieved a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Canterbury University. My practice involves figuration and patterning through application of paint, a continual process of creating, overly populated spaces, that reference and borrow motifs from my own life and my connection to Canterbury and Banks Peninsula. My work attempts to depict a living quality in all my subject matter.
