Stephanie Connell becomes a Patron for Stamp Active

Stephanie Connell, one of the UK’s leading consultants in Art and Antiques, has become a Patron for Stamp Active.

She is well known as one of the antique and collectables specialists on the popular BBC series, “The Antique Roadshow”, “Bargain Hunt” and in Series 18 and 19 of the “Antiques Road Trip”. Stephanie has over 12 years’ experience within the fine art industry and now has her own retail business. She has a Masters Degree in Fine Art Valuation and a Bachelors Degree in the History of Art and Design (including Film History) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Interior Design.

She has explained that her interest in collectables began with stamps… “Antiques and history have been a passion of mine since childhood. I started collecting stamps aged 9 or 10 and dragged my parents to antique shops to help me find more. Once I saw all the other things you could buy that were interesting, that was it!”

Stephanie added “Stamps create a window into the world of people, places and history and much more. They have inspired me to look at lots of different things and led me into a career that has brought nothing but pleasure into my life and lots of fun.”
