About
Velvet and Gold

 

Hi! My name is Stephanie. I am an artist who loves marrying letters, art, and colors together. I am passionate about taking your dream ideas and making them into something tangible. Whether its your wedding, birthday, or just an ordinary day, I'm your girl.  Let's make something special. 

Why “Velvet and Gold?”

The process of refining gold takes an intense amount of pressure, heat, and filtering. Alternatively, velvet poses as a frail and delicate fabric. Like these two elements, my life has been inspired by much pressing and chiseling (gold),  then intermittently followed by rich seasons of blessing and restoration (velvet). Hence the name "Velvet and Gold!" You'll find that much of my work features darkness and light co-existing and creating beauty in the friction.
