From a dreamer to a doer, Stephen Brown creates a unique handmade aesthetic in his studio called Glitterville, where he takes designs dreamed up on walks and brings them to life on the studio floor. As former actor, costume designer and 5th Avenue window display artist, Stephen's creative streak runs deep. “I always loved holidays," Stephen says. "My Nana would always craft with me, and we would start crafting for Christmas in June. All the other kids were getting really excited that Christmas Day was coming, but the closer Christmas came, the sadder I got. Because the minute people unwrap their gifts on Christmas Day, it’s pretty much over. So I remember one Christmas my nana saying to me, ‘Well, we have to get up tomorrow and we have to make something else because we have to make every day a holiday.’"
