About the postcard artworks
The paintings submitted to for AOAP for International Women’s Day aim to portray and exude a tension between the motions of contentment and apprehension. Calling on the subconscious, Stephenson paints rapidly to chase internal dialogues in order to arrive at a clearer idea of herself and her inner desires.
