Stephanie Hongo

Stephanie “Sugarfox” Hongo has been working as a trash sculptor since June of 2017. She began this work after abruptly quitting her full-time job. Her goal became a career as a freelance artist, and trash sculpting was her creative solution to affording supplies with no income, after all: trash is in surplus and it’s free. 


Now going into her 7th year, trash sculpting is Stephanie’s full-time career. She has completed more the 250 pieces in this time. Her work can be seen everywhere from a public mural in Bristol, CT to a zoo in Florida, and even to the homes of celebrities. Stephanie has been recognized in People magazine, on the Kelly Clarkson show, and across countless online publications. She currently works out of her home studio in Connecticut selling work primarily through her social media. Stephanie chooses to focus mostly on animals as her subjects and she uses plastics more commonly than any other material to build with. She strongly encourages everyone to give this work a try, as she believes it’s available to everyone with endless possibilities of how to use it.
