Stefanie studied communication design, fine art, and photography at The Open Window School of Visual Communication, Pretoria (1999 – 2001). With a special interest in photography, she furthered her studies at the National College of Photography in Pretoria, where she graduated with a joint best portfolio award, (2004). In 2008, Stefanie moved to the UK where she studied for a diploma in Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counseling and Psychotherapy Education in London, (2009 – 2013). This experience of an in-depth inquiry into the human psyche informs her work as a fine art photographer. In June 2015 Stefanie returned to South Africa. She has been a full-time artist since 2015. She participated in a number of group exhibitions in galleries and art festivals around South Africa. Stefanie’s work has been published in photographic journals and magazines both in print and online from around the world. Her work has been featured on numerous online galleries.
