I am an artist and owner of artHAUS in Salt Lake City. I specializes in watercolor, pottery, and fine arts design. You can visit my website at www.stephaniehillmandesign.com.
I started doing art at a very young age. My parents always encouraged me to expand on my artistic abilities, and provided me with the resources and classes I needed to start my career as an artist. I began taking watercolor classes at the Petersen’s Art Center in 2003. I had never tried watercolor before and was interested in learning a new form of art. Since then watercolor has become a medium I enjoy working with the most. Watercolor has taught me to reach new levels with my art, always challenging me to let the picture paint itself and learning how to let go of control. However, I do enjoy other mediums where I am able to take more control of the finished result.
My ink designs were not something I originally aspired to do, but while in high school I started with simple design elements that were later recognized by my piers. From there I began to create tattoo designs for interested prospectors, which made me more fascinated in the design aspect of ink. I started to create more elaborate designs leaning less towards tattoos and more towards media. However, my growth did not end there, and I continued to explore new genres of art.
During my time at the Petersen Art Center I focused mainly on fine arts, but was approached by a fellow teacher who recognized my talents and asked me to join her pottery class. Pottery was definitely my biggest challenge because it took on a whole new aspect to art. It was a good learning experience to transition from working with a palette to working more hands on. Pottery has made me grow into a whole new artist, and I hope to continue to grow and learn more about all aspects of art.
I studied fine arts at the Petersen’s Art Center in Salt Lake City for 13 years, and was a children’s art instructor there for 10 years before deciding to open artHAUS in 2016.
For prospective students, artHAUS is an awesome environment for children and adults of all ages to learn and grow. If you are interested, please contact us.
