Artist Statement:

Stephanie Tan is an illustrator with a penchant for meticulous and repetitive work. She is greatly inspired by crafter culture, the DIY movement, and vintage nostalgia. She often turns to patterns and textiles for inspiration. She aims to convey a feeling of whimsy and wonder through the simplest use of line and color. Currently she is working on a body of paper sculptures, à la Mu Pan’s “origamu”.
