Stephanie Leisering was born in Elgin, Illinois in 1985. She was interested in the visual arts from a very young age and continued that into high school where she went to the Renaissance School for the Arts. She studied sculpture and painting at the University of Wisconsin- Fox Valley and then she received her BFA from The Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. Very shortly after graduating she gave birth to her first and only child. She then took some time off to be able to bond with her son and focus on family and work. While she had always been involved in the arts she recently choose to focus more on expanding her presence in the art community. She has been involved with all of the Artery and Bazaar After Dark events for the past two years, which were comprised of showing and selling her work in various cities in the surrounding Fox Valley area.
