A daughter of Jamaican immigrants, Stephanie Brown grew up in South Florida at the intersection of her Jamaican and Black American identities.
Broadly her work is a reflection of her internal self/ancestral exploration. The work is a historical yet critical investigation of identity construction and implicit and explicit bias. Stephanie identifies as an interdisciplinary artist interweaving mediums to narrate a greater contextual story rooted in historical research and familial narratives that aim to empower people of color to discover themselves and take control of who they choose to be and become.
Stephanie holds a BFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA degree in Interdisciplinary Art and Museum Studies Certificate from the University of Michigan.
