International award-winning photographer Stephanie A. MacKenzie, is a vibrant talent. Multiple layers, brilliant colours and intricate designs unite through storytelling and blended archetypes bringing lush dimensions to her work. Deriving inspiration from her surroundings, MacKenzie is always dreaming up her next piece even when surrounded by the banal sights of life's daily routine.
With three suitcases and her camera by her side, Mackenzie got a one-way ticket from Toronto to the largest hot spot for Art leaving her family and friends behind to pursue her dream. Now residing in Paris, France, Stephanie is working internationally. Her award winning Art has been published and collected globally.
I invite you to sit back, relax, and surrender into unconsciousness to experience the surreal dreaminess of Stephanie Mackenzie’s “Pop Renaissance” Art.
Inspired by imagination and felt in every brush stroke, MacKenzie’s dreams come alive. With a solid, cutting edge education at Sheridan College she is spawning an avant-garde Art movement called “Pop Renaissance”. Intertwining Art & photography with today's advance computer technology, bringing 15th century art into a 21st century vision.
Her Art is gaining recognition & being collected on a global level & has been showcased for donation alongside His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Sir Peter Blake CBE RDI, Pierce Brosnan OBE and Nick Park CBE for The Prince's Trust charity in London UK.
Creation of each piece requires MacKenzie to draw on all her traditional art studies of drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as her extensive computer skills. The process of producing each piece is complex. Models, costumes, lighting, set and storyboards are important elements in the early stages before digital technology is applied to create the final Arts. After being printed on canvas, MacKenzie’s original works are hand-embellished by adapting and using acrylic paint and gel mediums to create her multiple dimensional unique originals using a method influenced by the famous chiaroscuro technique developed in the Renaissance period.
