artist statement

 My paintings connect to the natural world with the intuitive force that is constantly in motion and revolving in our lives.  The goal is to get underneath the everyday things around us to open a portal that may take the viewer someplace unexpected and give a feeling of reflection or peace.  



Otter Creations, based in Aitkin, Minnesota, is the business name under which I create, exhibit and sell Stephanie Mirocha art.  I believe in the strength and flourishing that comes from allowing your passion -- doing what you love -- to emerge.   My Songbird Studio provides me with a wonderful space to work in several media, from oil, silk painting, and acrylic to my main love, watercolor.
