Stephanie Chambers

Stephanie Chambers teaches part-time in the area of art. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting at Northern Illinois University and both her Master of Arts in Painting/Printmaking and Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, Texas. Born in Austin, Texas, she lived in Texas for 27 years before moving to Illinois in 2011. She currently lives and works in Sycamore, Illinois. Her on-site, observational paintings are painted at night and rooted in the experience of seeing but not seeing, the not seeing but feeling. They focus on the mental, physical and spiritual connections with nature and challenge the assumptions of what nature is, how we come to know and interact with it. Professor Chambers enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling, exploring nature and playing board games. You can learn
