Steph Neary studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and considers herself a self-taught visual artist. Inspired by traditional craftwork and folklore, Neary’s arts-and-crafts style often uses collected objects such as antique fabric, buttons and discarded objects. Combining these materials calls to recognize the humanity of material and the environment. Currently, she serves as an artist mentor a VaultArt Studio.
