CUSTOM ARTWORK for your home

Stephanie has been working one-on-one with clients for a decade to create personal and meaningful artwork, including traditional oil portraits and pet portraits.

Torregrossa: Italian - topographic name for someone who lived near a distinctively large tower, from torre ‘tower’ + grossa ‘big’.

I launched my creative practice in my early 20's, before I was married. It was at that point that I decided to brand my little company and sign my work "Torregrossa," my maiden name. 

Soo.. where does "Torregrossa" come from?
