She Stands Tall®
Entrepreneur, artist, musician, and mom scratch the surface of who Steph Davies is and why she does what she does. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and traveling the States with her Wisconsinite husband, they settled in Milwaukee. Part Steph’s studio space (she designs Dear Darlington jewelry) and part consignment shop, Steph opened The Waxwing in 2012. She expanded the store to its current North Avenue location in 2015, and now represents over 300 local and national artists (including past She Stands Tall speakers and owners of Artery Ink). Steph took over the eye-catching Milwaukee Home brand in July, bringing with it an exciting array of opportunities and challenges. Steph will tell us how she got here, what keeps her up at night, and why she wouldn’t change a thing.
