Stephanie Quattrini is a fiber artist and teacher who relocated to the
Charlotte area in 2008 from New Zealand, where she lived for 10 years.
Originally from the UK, Stephanie was considered by her high school art and
needlecraft teachers to be ‘beyond teachable’!

Having little to do with any artistic expression until she reached New
Zealand in 1999, Stephanie finally gave in to the natural beauty and
magnificent landscapes surrounding her. The fact that there were 67 million
sheep probably steered Stephanie in the direction of felting first of all
which is still one of her major passions. Stephanie works mainly with
textiles and multi-media landscapes. Her mission is to make color sing.
She also loves to pass on her skills through the classroom and is committed
to ensuring that everyone she teaches becomes a creative star.

  1. Oooo - love the waterfall and the swirls underneath.

    My parents and I visited New Zealand in 1977, fell in love and almost moved there. I remember the fjords and waterfalls in Milford Sound - stunning!
