Stacey was born and raised in Central New York where the winters are cold and snowy, the summers are hot and humid, and spring and fall too short. It is here that she captures scenes of urban and rural landscapes using either oils or pastels. 

Stacey taught art for 31 years. Recently retired, Stacey has been able to focus on her art, working both en plein air and in her studio.  She has had several group and solo shows, and has participated in a number of plein air festivals in the region.
