Stephanie uses natural dye science and traditional resist techniques of ikat, clamp, stitch, wrap, and dip, in her colour, process and material guided work. Her mastery of colour touches both the functional and non functional worlds of art, design and fashion.
Stephanie trained in interpretive illustration at Sheridan College and received her interdisciplinary BFA from NSCAD University, with focus in textiles and art history. Fortin held a full time artist-in-residence position at Harbourfront Centre (Toronto, ON) for three and a half years and became a member of The Contemporary Textile Studio Coop (Toronto, ON) to follow. Stephanie has exhibited and shown her work in North America, China and Mexico. She currently works out of a studio on Dupont st. in Toronto, ON.
