STEPHANIE BORG™ is a self-taught artist, graphic designer and surface pattern designer. Her art has been mostly influenced by her living experiences of living in Italy and the Sultanate of Oman, as well as her keen observation and absorbance of Maltese daily life and culture.
STEPHANIE BORG™ has exhibited both in Malta and abroad and has a permanent display of enlarged artworks at the Magazino Hall at the Valletta Waterfront. Her work can be found in private collections in various countries around the world. Stephanie’s lifelong fascination with old Maltese patterned tiles inspires her Malta Tile Collection. Her Gift Wrap Paper and the newly-launched Placemats are amongst the artist’s products that depict her meticulous ink drawings of traditional Maltese doors. For her ink drawings, the artist uses a time-consuming technique whereby layers of ink are applied to achieve the desired effect, depth and opacity. Each brushstroke is an irreversible trial but the artist finds this more thrilling than risky.
Today the artist will be launching a newly renovated boutique studio in Rabat, a fresh collection that includes mixed media illustrations on espresso sets and placemats and, last but not least, an online shop which includes more than 300 items. www.stephanieborg.com
