     Stephanie Ferreira was born in 1996 in São Paulo, Brazil. Her interest in paintings only started when she was about to finish high school. After declining an architecture scholarship, she took a gap year and traveled to Providence, RI, where, for the first time, she took formal art education classes at RISD.

      In 2016, she went study Fine Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she was able to refine her skills as a painter. Later, she went to Rome, Italy to study in a small Accademia focused on High Fashion tailoring and confection, where she learned traditional Italian techniques of textile work, including embroidery and fabric decoration. At the same time, she continued to work on her drawings and paintings. Currently, her goal is to fuse both worlds, experimenting with fiber art and painting.
