Previously, I taught graphic design full- time at Webster University, St.Louis. I then moved to Los Angeles and taught at Laguna College of Art and Design, then my mother became ill so I moved to Indianapolis and taught at Marian University in the graphic design department. I have always done freelance graphic design continuously throughout the years.

Raining Blue is an independent jewelry and accessories business designed by the owner, Stephanie Taugner. Founded in 2008, Raining Blue began as a hobby but quickly transformed to a full-time business in 2011. Using mixed media, Stephanie creates designs inspired by color, forms and compositional shapes. Some designs are, edgy, and highly unique in their look. Others are classic, timeless and elegant. This is because she feels both are beautiful in their differences."I work very hard to continue to energize my creative work, to inspire and delight my customers having them relate to the designs". Recently, large scale silk paintings are being made and sold as (one of a kind hanging art) for homes as well. When describing her work, Stephanie simply states that she creates pieces to enhance a woman not overpower her. "Body adornments are interactive art. The designs move with us, demonstrating aspects of who we are, truly. My hope is that Raining Blue captures that. The name Raining Blue portrays the dreamlike reality of our world that I feel. Ethereal moments in time, seen but not captured, the invisible made visible. I hope that my art and jewelry will in some way reveal these moments in life that rarely can be captured. I give my heart through these designs. It is always an honor when things are bought and worn. Bringing a bit of my best self to you in this way is the gift of creating. Although, having you wear and love them is the best part! Read Less

Stephanie’s work often tends to express moods and emotions and difficult experiences people experience in life. Words, imagery, color, and strokes come into play in her paintings. Time gone by is evoked as well. Social commentary and issues about the culture we live in is often expressed in her work. This describes using words, what her art work conveys but it is always for the viewer to experience whatever he or she feels since it is about each person’s perception in the moment.
