More About The Artist: Stefanie Bales
Stefanie Bales is a San Diego-based contemporary, fine art painter and muralist. She earned a B.F.A in Studio Arts and an M.S. in Educational Counseling with a focus on Art Therapy applications with neuro-diverse populations. Stefanie taught at a local design college for over 10 years prior to opening her gallery + storefront, Stefanie Bales Fine Art. Her work has been published extensively and is in both public and private collections across the United States and internationally.
Stefanie's gallery work is inspired by the interaction of light and landscape, as evident in her whimsical typologies and soft, feminine palettes. Currently, Stefanie is working as an artist full-time and is active in the local creative community facilitating entrepreneurial networks and co-leading the San Diego chapter of the Yellow Collective, a membership platform for women-owned businesses that have a "do good" aspect to their business. This project is directly aligned with Stefanie's brand identity in the support of women in the arts, in history, and within their communities. Activating this narrative is something Stefanie is passionate about in her career and her personal life.
Stefanie is also a mom of two boys, Weston and Rowan, who are her greatest works of art.
