Stockbridge is a contemporary painter who resides in Vancouver and is in love with nature. Through her paintings she reveals her conflict of what nature is truly like in urban life. Stockbridges says, “Living in an urban centre, I am constantly reminded of a desire to be in nature. Realizing that nature is something we create within ourselves and within our city limits (and outside of them with park lands and resorts etc.) allows me to find a sense of harmony and relief with my daily routine and activities. I cannot say that I am fed only by the immediacy of the world around, it is difficult to say; history must be a huge part of it, holding as much relevance and influence as my environment. It is, without question though, that I am encouraged to comment about the human experience within the urban centre, the city in a constant state of flux and the struggle between city and nature.”
Stockbridge has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
