Stephanie spent much of her Glenfield childhood reading books instead of playing sports. She also loved sketching people and drawing caricatures of those around her.
After working for a while in a library she studied for 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 about a clumsy giraffe (inspired by her gangly brother)- this launched her career.
Stephanie lives in Huia, West Auckland.
