She went on to study photography at Virginia Commonwealth University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Currently, Stacey works as an artist, educator and commercial photographer. Her clients include educational institutions, small businesses and individuals. She is adjunct faculty at Piedmont Virginia Community College and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, as well as an Artist-in-Residence in the Albemarle County school system.

Stacey grew up in Waynesboro, Virginia; a small town made diverse by its variety and combination of different landscapes – rural, urban, industrial and suburban – all within a 10 mile radius. Over the years, she have worked to translate her formative visual experiences and demonstrate the role landscapes play within culture. What this looks like changes from region to region. She is interested in how people occupy, shape and transform the land for use; how our experiences and feelings change over time and what we can read into the collective artifacts left behind.
