Painter, photographer and printmaker, Stevie Howell loves many mediums. But it’s her role as textile designer that has her layering all three to give her patterns a distinct twist. Merging handcraft with digital techniques, this native San Franciscan experiments with color and shapes, contrasts and layers. The result is simultaneously organic and otherworldly.
A former student of both the Glasgow School of Art and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Stevie’s aesthetic is modern and sublime. Whether she is designing wallpaper or a silk robe, Stevie strives to create colorful pieces that connect with people and bring joy to their lives. From a trip to Brazil to the weeds behind her studio, she lets life’s big and not-so-big moments inspire her to make the ordinary a little less so.
