My name is Stephanie Bagwell. I am a professional artist and full time mom to two wild & wonderful toddlers. I graduated from UNCW in 2010 with a B.A. in Communication and a minor in Art. You can find a lot of my original work for sale at Blue Moon Gift Shop & Art Gallery in Wilmington NC.
I specialize in pet portraits and weddings. I also love helping people with other creative ideas- from restaurant murals to nursery art. My personal work is often inspired by the ocean. Some of my large coastal paintings were recently featured in the National Humanities Center, in Durham NC. It was an honor to be featured in their exhibit and contribute to a global discussion about environmental conservation.
I was born in Jupiter, Florida, but my family established roots in Wilmington NC sometime around 1994. After college I moved around a bit. I was initially in the marketing industry, but in 2014 I started my journey as an art instructor. I taught an array of painting classes for 6 years at Pinots Palette and Wine and Design; meeting hundreds of people along the way. Teaching was incredibly fulfilling because I could share my love of art with the community. Recently, I decided to pause my teaching career in order to focus on growing my art business while I raised my children at home.
