Stella's practice is situated between photography and sculpture. Central to her work are themes of ephemerality, transience and the poetic. She creates site-specific, immersive installations that encourage the active participation of the viewer.
Her work has been exhibited in the U.K., where she currently resides as well as internationally. Solo exhibitions include "The Magician" at Gloam Gallery, Sheffield (2021).
International group exhibitions include, most recently "Seeing Stars" (2022) at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, University of Leeds and "Photography is Magic", Aperture Foundation, New York, (2016) curated by Charlotte Cotton. She has taken part in international residencies, including the "New Materiality" residency, at the Banff, Centre for Arts, Alberta, Canada (2016).
She holds a Practice-based Phd (2007) from Goldsmiths College, University of London and an MA in Photographic Studies from the University of Westminster, (2002). Her work is held in private art collections and the Paul D. Fleck Archive of Artists Books at the Banff Centre for Arts, Alberta, Canada.
