Stephanie Forrest is an artist working across drawing, painting and print. Rooted in observational drawing, her work responds to the flow and unfolding of the world around her. With a background in Art History, she combines a wide scope of references with an intuitive creative approach. Preferring fluid, unpredictable materials and techniques, Forrest works predominantly with ink and watercolour on handmade papers. Rhythmic and gestural, her recent work explores the body in movement; working both from dance as performance and as a subject throughout art history. She was awarded the ACS Drawing Prize in 2019 and has work in the Royal Collection and Government Art Collection.
Forrest is also a tutor at the Royal Drawing School, where she completed The Drawing Year in 2018-19, going on to develop her painting practice at Turps Banana, London. She also teaches a bespoke course on observational drawing for students at Brockwood Park School, Hampshire.
b.1986 Forrest is based between London and Winchester.
