Stephanie's early fascination with animals led her to draw animal portraits, which she calls "STEPHimals". While she's received much publicity for her art, Stephanie's main goal is to make people feel happy. She's donated her STEPHimals to organizations and individuals that help animals and people with special needs and did a showcase for Autism Awareness Month. Stephanie's diagnosed with autism, developmental delay and epilepsy. She hopes her story will encourage others with special needs to follow their dreams.
