Gallery Talk by Stephanie Stouffer
Following a ten year period designing for Hallmark, Belmont artist Stephanie Stouffer had a 35 year career as a freelance artist. She designed more than 1,500 original gouache paintings used for licensing by companies like Caspari, Certified International, and Peking Handicrafts.
With a personal, first-hand experience of truly earning a living as a freelance artist, Stouffer will give a Gallery Talk at the Compass Music and Arts Center, as part of her current exhibit ‘The Creative World of Stephanie Stouffer’, on Sunday, October 2 at 2:00pm. The artist will share both the creative compromises and rewards of a freelance career in licensing, acknowledging the role her time with Hallmark took in preparing her for her chosen path. She will discuss the demands and frustrations of staying ‘on top’ of the market, of staying creatively fresh and innovative while meeting the commercial interests and time demands of manufacturers, but also why she feels her work proved to be so appealing and successful.
