Stephanie MacLean was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1974. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Printmaking at the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1997. Following graduation she worked as a commercial silkscreen printer for ten years. In 2009 Stephanie moved to Toronto, Ontario and began to pursue her art career full time.

Stephanie primarily works in the medium of coloured pencil, charcoal and mixed media encaustic. Her contextual focus has been on portraiture and figurative work with an emphasis on the female form. Stephanie shows regularly with The Super Wonder Gallery and has participated in Salon shows with Gerrard Art Space, Pentimento Gallery (defunct) and the Propeller Gallery.
