grew up in Middlebury, Vermont where she thrived artistically with unlimited access to her Mom's stenciling paints, vintage button tins, and fabric collections. Always encouraged to pursue her creative interests in school, she found that art was her favorite and most successful subject. She later attended Castleton State College and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art.
A life-long pack rat and dumpster diver, Stacie enjoys the excitement of the search for supplies almost as much as making the art itself. She spends her time scavenging thrift stores, rummage sales, and yard sales for interesting objects which other people have discarded. Stacie also uses various mediums such as paint, wire, buttons, paper, glass beads, melted plastic, old bottle caps, vintage cookbooks, and fabric to create clever and innovative crafts. Stacie's collection of work is always big and bright as a whole, and people sometimes refer to it as sparkly. She can often be found at local farmers markets and craft shows selling her creations.
Stacie is best known for her designs utilizing old zippers, which she organizes into interesting patterns to create beautiful and unique brooches and hair barrettes.
