Hi, I'm Stacy! Owner, operator, photographer, editor, teacher, painter, and one-woman-show of Design Studio.
I LOVE MY JOB! I have a super supportive husband and two little rascal boys who keep me on my toes. You can find them pictured many times on my gallery pages. I'm so proud! You can also find lots of my extended family because they are my biggest supporters and fans. I'm one lucky gal.
Just a little bit about me....
I lived in Georgia as a kid so you may just hear a y'all come out. I am kind of a tomboy. I am the cool mom and designated mouse-catcher who isn't afraid to pick up a snake if it will fascinate my boys. Many think I am crazy and that's okay. I walk to the beat of my own drum and like it that way. However, I also like to be girly and I LOVE shopping with my girls! I love shoes (though now I go for comfort and own almost 20 pairs of TOMS). I taught art for ten years and what I miss most is the funny discussions I have had with my high school students. You know who you are and remember I never said that. When I write, I use way too many explanation points...I guess I am just really excited!!! I love junk food, carbs and Diet Mountain Dew (even though I know better). I graduated with my Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota, Morris with a triple degree in Studio Art (painting and ceramics), Art History, and Secondary Education. I love all arts and enjoy dabbling in many different areas of study.
As a business owner, my goal is simply to make my customers happy and have them walk away having had a great experience. Whether that be after a photo session or a paint party. I love
meeting new people and hope to meet you soon!
