I'm Stefanie, an artist who launched The Creativity Spa as a way to explore and share the connection between creativity and wellness. I believe everyone has a creative side and there are many ways to tap into it. This is a new and evolving platform featuring artists, books and more. I hope you will visit often!
Born and raised in Washington DC and the daughter of art lovers, Stefanie Stark was surrounded by original art at home and in area museums. She knew she wanted to be an artist by age nine and recorded that fact in her “Book About Me,” which she recently rediscovered when looking through childhood keepsakes. Creating, whether drawing, painting, working with clay or creative writing, was what she loved to do as a child. However, Stefanie largely put her creativity on hold for several years when she earned an MSW degree and worked as a social worker helping families and children. She later found her way to painting, and now works from a home studio every day.
During the novel coronavirus pandemic in 2020, Stefanie decided to hold an art contest for children. Knowing everyone was spending more time at home, she hoped the contest would help parents searching for activities for their children away from screens. Stefanie also felt some kids would have fun getting creative with the hope of a tangible prize. After all, she would have loved this opportunity as a child!
Long-wanting to help others see the connection between creativity and wellness in some manner, Stefanie decided to develop a platform for creative activities, the sharing of articles and books, contests and more. The Creativity Spa is now that platform.
STEFANIE STARK is an abstract and floral painter whose work regularly hangs in local, regional and national juried art shows.

Stefanie currently lives in Bethesda, Maryland with her family and hopes never to stop creating.
