Stephanie T. Gaffney is a fine artist in South Louisiana who is best known for her breathtaking live wedding paintings and timeless portrait work.
A native of Baton Rouge and LSU alumna, Stephanie currently resides outside of New Orleans with her two precious little girls, and husband, esteemed attorney Chris Gaffney.
Stephanie has a degree in graphic design, though her design career was interrupted very soon after graduating when she discovered a deeply rooted desire to serve and delight people in an emotional level with her artwork.
She began her painting career connecting with individuals and providing custom painting services, quickly niching down to pet portraits and studio portraiture.
In 2015, a friend’s request to paint at her wedding opened Stephanie’s eyes to the world of live painting entertainment, and she embraced her new mission to provide one-of-a-kind and sentimental paintings for newlyweds, as well as charismatic entertainment.
After seven years of focusing solely on commissioned works, Stephanie is now embarking on new paths in her career: She is intentionally developing new original collections and offering art prints, and at the same time elevating her wedding paintings and sharing her experiences and knowledge with other artists as an educator and mentor.
Stephanie’s mission to serve and delight people with her artwork is as ardent today as it was the day she left her desk job, as her body of work and reach continues to grow.
