About Stephanie Benenson

Stephanie Benenson is an artist living and working on the North Shore of Boston, MA. As a third generation artist from Cape Ann, Massachusetts, Benenson underlines the importance of tradition, storytelling, history, family, resilience, and the human need for connectivity to past, present, and future through exploration of place-based imagery in her work. To her, painting and printmaking became the physical embodiment of historic exchange and intergenerational storytelling given her family tradition. She incorporates historic imagery and found objects from the harbors where she painted with her father and grandfather. These objects become a vehicle to explore history, place, tradition, and cultural resilience.
