Studio 115 is an independent, artist-run space founded by Long Beach artists Stephanie Han and Anne Kupillas. The space is geared toward providing affordable exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, especially those in underrepresented groups.
Stephanie has a BFA degree in Illustration from the Laguna College of Art & Design, and also an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since graduating in 1999, she has pursued a career in painting and graphic design. She currently lives and works in Long Beach.
Born in 1968 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, Anne’s love of art began as a child growing up on Long Island, New York, in a family of artists and musicians who encouraged her creativity. Her artwork is informed by freedom and movement, love of color, nature and the human form.
Anne is a graduate of State University of NY’s SUNY Albany with a Bachelor of Arts, and has studied fine art and art history in New York, Washington DC, Northampton, England and California. Anne enjoys traveling and plein air painting, as well as studio work. She is a member of the Arts Council of Long Beach, and you can find her at many events in and around town. Anne’s belief in “affordable art” is evident in her prints and her custom work, which are favorites with locals, visitors and collectors alike.
