Biography


Stephanie Buraga Fisher is a 24-year-old Asian Pacific Islander American, pinay, pansexual, and genderqueer artist. Their pronouns are she/her and they/them. They have no formal training in art, in fact, for the longest time they denied themself the freedom to create because they followed the stereotypical path designated for the eldest child of an Amerasian family (pursuing a college degree in the STEM field). Their mother is Filipino and their father is from upstate New York. Born in Garapan Village, they spent their early childhood growing up on Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. They are anything but conventional and, as a scientist-turned-artist, their upbringing has given them an incomparable drive to forward POC and LGBTQ+ representation. Stephanie began publicly displaying art on May 21st of this year – since then, their work has been shown in the following online juried exhibitions: Fusion Art Gallery’s June 2020 2nd Annual Lines, Shapes & Objects Show, Colors of Humanity Art Gallery’s July 2020 “Black and White” Show, and in the Exquisite and Finalist categories in the Tranquility Fine Arts Gallery’s Inspirational Botanicals Show. Currently, they have been selected as one of three artists in the Tranquility Fine Arts Gallery’s 1st Annual Featured Artists Online Juried Exhibition from August 4th, 2020 until December 31st, 2020. Aside from visual art, they also create through spoken word poetry. With this newfound freedom and acceptance within the art community, they have recently started publicly exhibiting their writing as well. They were selected as a Distinguished Writer and their piece “Stop-Start” has been published in the ArtAscent V44 Abstract August 2020 International Art Magazine. The world always felt upside-down to them – the arts allow them to make sense of the world around them in a way that science never could.
