“…Stuppin’s paintings produce a serotonin rush of pleasure.  In part this comes from the kind of naivete or innocence they embody, and in part comes from their visual richness.  But there is more at work on these surfaces.  Stuppin employs a series of compositional strategies-rhythmic patterns and careful juxtapositions of color-calculated to capture and reveal the essential unifying principals of the natural world.  The paintings provide us with a sense of sacredness inherent in each moment and each place, to which we are invited, along with the artist, to feel, to contemplate, and to revere.” Miriam Roberts, Santa Fe
