Stephanie Fuller is a multi-national artist whose paintings evoke strong emotions by blending seascapes and landscapes with an expressionistic style that highlights the human condition and our relationship with the natural world.

With a well-rounded education in painting, drawing, and sculpture from Bath Academy, Norwich Life Room, and Wimbledon School of Art, Fuller has honed her technical skills. Her late husband, Peter Fuller, inspired her interest in ideas, beauty, and culture, while her childhood spent near the sea in Western Australia shaped her understanding of the natural world and her place within it.

Fuller's artwork primarily revolves around environmental consciousness, reminding us of our connection to nature and our animalistic origins. Her creatures and people are intertwined in her paintings, which have been exhibited and collected by museums and private collectors globally for the past 30 years. Tragically, one of her large paintings was lost in the recent Australian bushfires.

Over the years, Stephanie has had the privilege of visiting the studios of notable artists, including members of the Bomberg School, Leon Kossoff, and Roy Oxlade and the sculptor Henry Moore. David Bomberg's drawing skills and teachings, particularly his "spirit in the mass" concept of capturing the intuitive essence of a subject, have been a guiding force in Stephanie's artistic journey and will continue to influence her work.

Stephanie Fuller's artwork has been widely recognised and collected by museums and private collectors worldwide for the past 30 years.

Throughout her career, Stephanie Fuller has been recognised for her artistic talents and has received numerous awards. She has held over twenty solo exhibitions and participated in more than a hundred group exhibitions in the UK, California, Australia, and even in the online Web3 space through her NFTs. She has been a finalist in prestigious competitions such as the Fleurieu Art Prize, the Blake Prize, Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London, and many art fairs across Australia and in London.

 Stephanie Burns

In 2001, Stephanie Fuller established Stephanie Burns Fine Art, a leading gallery in Canberra. The gallery showcased Fuller's works along with those of contemporary artists from Australia and Britain, as well as European Master Prints. After the gallery's closure in 2008, Stephanie devoted most of her time to painting and participating in exhibitions in Australia and London. In 2013, the gallery was reopened in New South Wales, with Stephanie's paintings and European Master Prints being the centrepiece of the new space.

Stephanie's art career flourished during her hiatus from the gallery scene, as she focused on refining her own practice. Over a period of 5 years, she sold 150 of her paintings through the gallery and exhibitions across Australia. One of her notable series was "Migaloo the White Whale," a collection of 25 paintings that brought attention to the issue of Japanese whaling in the Southern Oceans and the need for ocean conservation. The series utilised Migaloo, a famous individual whale, as a metaphor for life and the significance of preserving our oceans. Despite the ban on whaling, it has since resumed, making Stephanie's series all the more relevant and impactful.

For over two decades, Stephanie Fuller has been exploring the beauty and importance of our planet's flora through her art. She works in a variety of media, including bronze, waxes, and oil paintings, to create large and colourful flowers that seem to come alive. Each flower is given a personality, often named after women or characters from classical literature, as a way of emphasising their significance. Through this series of flowers and flowering trees, Stephanie aims to raise awareness about the vital role that plants play in our lives and to bring a piece of nature into urban environments.The Moon - Although the first moon painting was in 2013, capturing the moon at dusk is a new departure. A few years ago Stephanie was commissioned to do a large moon painting over the sea by a client, since then a new series of paintings of the moon over the sea have come since the artists move to the English Seaside earlier this year. The Thanet light, which her grandmother often mentioned in childhood stories, has been a revelation.

The Sea

For over a decade, Stephanie has been capturing the beauty of the sea through her art. From Australia to California to the United Kingdom, she has depicted the sea from various angles and in all its colors and moods in a diverse and extensive series. The paintings range from crowded beaches to remote and untouched islands, from rock pools teeming with young life to the vast ocean. The goal of her work is to raise awareness about the natural beauty that surrounds us and to inspire viewers to cherish and protect it. Her aim is for these contemporary paintings to remain relevant and depict a world that still exists in the future.

In 2017/18 Stephanie spent a year in Los Angeles preparing for and exhibiting in Elysium Verto - Paradise is Changing.

In 2019, she returned to the United Kingdom and resumed her artistic endeavours as Stephanie Fuller, the name under which she previously exhibited, instead of her maiden name Burns.


The Need For Change

Stephanie began her artistic journey exploring the themes of death and mortality through sculptures and still life paintings. She then shifted her focus to painting the sea and raising awareness about the need to protect the ocean and its creatures. This series was well received by art collectors, and all of her paintings from 2010 to 2018 have been sold and are now in private collections around the world. Unfortunately, some of these works were lost in the recent bushfires in Australia that destroyed clients' homes. In December of 2019, as the devastating bushfires started to affect koala populations in Australia, Stephanie began work on a large painting focused on the tragedy. The subject was emotionally challenging, but Stephanie, as a dual national of Australia and the UK, felt a strong connection to both countries and wanted to use her art to bring attention to the issue.
