Stephanie Barenz


Madison, WI


Mixed Media



Artist Bio: Stephanie Barenz creates mixed media works inspired by the powerful and intimate relationships between our external surroundings and our internal landscapes. Merging photography, printmaking, painting, and collage, her creative practice responds to the transformative potential to be realized through encounters with new spaces—often those centered around bodies of water.

Barenz received her MFA from Washington University in St. Louis. She taught at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and ran her own studio and gallery in Milwaukee, WI. She has recently returned to Wisconsin after five years of living in Shanghai. She has completed residencies at the Art Students League of New York, the Chicago Printmakers’ Collaborative, and the Pfister Hotel in Wisconsin.

Selected exhibition sites include Sino ArtSpace in Shanghai, Solonia Art Center in Suzhou, Milwaukee Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art, John Michael Kohler Art Center, and the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts in Milwaukee.
