Stephanie attended the Université de Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens, France where she studied French Language and Translation and completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in French Language from Northern State University.

'Twenty Seven Names for Tears' is Foster's most cohesive art series which consists of nine large format portrait paintings in which the subjects are crying. The garish colors and raw brushstrokes evoke feelings of discomfort and sadness in the viewer and cause reflection upon the common thread of humanity that ties everyone together.

The artist's other notable works are sculptures which are heavily influenced by the Fluxus movement of the 1960's. Stephanie uses everyday materials within the confines of a box, suitcase or kit from which she creates an imaginary product designed to light the spark of a bigger question that will burn in the viewer's mind long after leaving the gallery space.
