Stephanie Borg ™ is a self­taught artist, graphic de­signer and sur­face pat­tern de­signer. Her art has been mostly in­flu­enced by her liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ences of liv­ing in Italy and the Sul­tanate of Oman, as well as her keen ob­ser­va­tion and ab­sorbance of Mal­tese daily life and cul­ture. Stephanie Borg ™ has ex­hib­ited both in Malta and abroad and has a per­ma­nent dis­play of en­larged art­works at the Magazino Hall at the Val­letta Wa­ter­front. Her work can be found in pri­vate col­lec­tions in var­i­ous coun­tries around the world. Stephanie’s life­long fas­ci­na­tion with old Mal­tese pat­terned tiles in­spires her Malta Tile Col­lec­tion. Her Gift Wrap Paper and the newly-launched Place­mats are amongst the artist’s prod­ucts that de­pict her metic­u­lous ink draw­ings of tra­di­tional Mal­tese doors.

For her ink draw­ings, the artist uses a time-con­sum­ing tech­nique whereby lay­ers of ink are ap­plied to achieve the de­sired ef­fect, depth and opac­ity. Each brush­stroke is an ir­re­versible trial but the artist finds this more thrilling than risky. To­day the artist will be launch­ing a newly ren­o­vated bou­tique stu­dio in Ra­bat, a fresh col­lec­tion that in­cludes mixed me­dia il­lus­tra­tions on espresso sets and place­mats and, last but not least, an on­line shop which in­cludes more than 300 items.

Let us or­gan­ise your own ex­clu­sive Tettiera Tea Party for an oc­cas­sion held at the vi­brant stu­dio of Stephanie Borg in Ra­bat. The party pack­ages will in­clude a tea con­cept setting, tea tast­ing ses­sion, bev­er­ages and fin­ger food to cre­ate that picture-per­fect tea party ex­pe­ri­ence.
