Stephanie Toppin

What do I say about Stephanie Toppin… For one, I’ve been following her on Flickr as a big fan since 2006. She is really starting to get her work out there, and I’m very excited to share it with you. I think she might be one of my favorite emerging artists. What I like most is that she expresses herself in a variety of different mediums, but with a common theme of color, texture, and movement while also being kind of futuristic. Prepare your eyeballs for some serious overload…

Firstly, she’s a fantastic painter. If you like crazy colorful abstracts, then it doesn’t get much better than her Coloreruptions.

She also creates artwork on fabric and then stitches over parts of it with colorful thread.
