Stephanie Dees attended Edinburgh College of Art, obtaining MFA Degree in Painting 1996 to 1998, adding to her Edinburgh College of Art, BA(Hons) Degree in Drawing and Painting from 1992 to 1996. Dees is a regular exhibitor at Society and Commercial Gallery group exhibitions throughout the UK and has been showing with The Scottish Gallery since 1997. Her works feature in private and public collections worldwide.

Stephanie’s Works of Edinburgh capture different seasons and changing light. From the pale light of winter with silhouetted bare trees, to the light and shade of a beautiful summer’s day and the bright bursts of green and vibrant colour that summer brings, through to the warm comforting glow of an autumnal day. With her East Lothian paintings, she considers the importance of space and the calmness and serenity she feels when looking out to sea. Having been brought up in North Berwick the certainty of the sea gives Stephanie time to reflect and look back to nature in the chaotic and busy time we live in. The warm character and joyous colours of the East Neuk harbour paintings conjure happy memories of her childhood holidays as she hopes to convey the unspoilt charm of this part of Scotland.
