Biography

Stephanie has always loved books and reading, and spent much of her Glenfield childhood lying around reading books instead of playing sports. She also loved drawing and painting, especially sketching people and drawing caricatures of those around her.

Stephanie worked at North Shore Libraries for a number of years before completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts at AUT in 1999. She worked in Auckland and Dublin for the next ten years as a graphic designer, all the while dreaming of someday making children’s books.

Following a children’s book illustration night-class in 2010 Stephanie wrote and illustrated her first picture book Great Galloping Galoot about a clumsy giraffe (inspired by her gangly brother).

Stephanie lives with her husband and three young boys in Huia, West Auckland.
