Stephanie Lemke-Vuljanic’

Croatian Pisanica and Memory Paintings
Mazomanie, WI

Stephanie Lemke-Vuljanic’Stephanie grew up in Ozalj, Croatia and from her mother learned the intricate art of decorating eggs with wrapped thread. Stephanie has maintained this generations-old tradition since moving to Wisconsin, and has expanded into memory painting as well. Her paintings focus on scenes from her life in Croatia. In her programs, she loves to help children imagine Croatian culture while exploring their own traditions and dreams. She leads them in pisanica, “keeping their hands busy doing something that looks impossible for some.”
