Stephanie Power is an illustrator, photographer, art director, and educator who began her career at Reactor Art & Design under the mentorship of creative director Louis Fishauf. Her illustration work, a pastiche of plastic-fantastic-little-girl-on- acid collage, took off in 1998. It was then that she began to create numerous book covers for Hyperion Books, Penguin, Harlequin, Roaring Book Press, Groundwood and Random House. Her editorial clients have included ELLE, Entertainment Weekly, Fashion 18, Seventeen, YM, InStyle, TV Guide, the NY Daily News, Baltimore Sun, The Wall Street Journal, Today’s Parent, DOSE, Glow and MORE magazine.

Using both her design and illustration skills, she created brand campaigns for the Eaton Centre, Fairview Mall, Liberty Boot Co., Doll Factory Studios, Nickelodeon and Hasbro Games. With Fishauf, she designed two series of Christmas stamps for Canada Post and assisted in art directing the Reactor Artwear line of illustrated t-shirts. She also designed books in collaboration with other illustrators, notably Henrik Drescher on the award- winning “The Boy Who Ate Around” and Maurice Vellekoop on “A Nut at the Opera” and “Vellevision.”

Currently she is experimenting with new ways of image making, drawing inspiration from the history of New York street photography for her project “MY/NY Deluxe Picture Book,” a photographic scrapbook published and exhibited in June 2016, as part of her MFA thesis in Documentary Media at Ryerson University.
Her work has been honored by the AIGA, the New York Art Directors Club, Applied Arts, The National Magazine Awards and the ADCC.

Her illustration work is featured in Modern Vintage Illustration, published by Batsford in the UK. She teaches illustration at OCADU. Read Less
