Stephanie O’Connor (USA)
Stephanie is a North American artist. She attended the Slade School of Fine Art in London where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in one of the three post-graduate art degrees offered there, Fine Art Media. She has continued to make work and engage with international and local art communities. For her first artist in residence, she was asked to join the National College of Arts graduate program in Lahore, Pakistan. Her work is inspired by various aspects of growing up as a Third Culture Kid, a contemporary term that defines children not raised in their country of nationality. For this reason, she is inspired by particularly the colorful handicrafts of indigenous cultures that are indicative to subcontinental Asia.
