Stephanie Wolff works with text, textile, and the book form creating both two- and three-dimensional art on themes of weather, science, history, and rural life. Her process begins with research: in archives and databases, by reading, in conversations with experts, and via active exploration. The examination and interpretation of the research help her form questions, make connections, gain knowledge, and expand her point of view.
She was the Fall 2015 Helen M. Salzberg Artist-in-Residence at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University. In 2013 she was awarded a Creative and Performing Artists and Writers Fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society, where her research focused on a set of early 19th century diaries, the subject of an ongoing body of work, Along the Banks of My River.
Her artist books have been exhibited in the United States and Germany and are held in many public and private collections. They are included in Buchwelten/Book Worlds (Kerber Verlag) and 500 Handmade Books, Volumes 1 & 2 (Lark Books).
Stephanie’s years as a book conservator at the Dartmouth College Library provided her with knowledge in the history, construction, repair, and care of a wide range of library materials, from books and manuscripts to maps, scrapbooks, and other objects.
As a longtime teacher of book arts to college students and others, she enjoys sharing her knowledge from bookbinding, book conservation, and fine arts to help people transform their ideas into tangible creations.
