At the beginning of her career as an artist, Steffi was influenced by the expressionism of the German painter August Macke (20th century). She learned by copying his works. Her approach gradually became more refined as she made different artistic discoveries. Although her style would change, color remained at the heart of her work.
Steffi is inspired by the memory of her past in Asia, of meeting different cultures and traditions. She loves the atmosphere of changing cityscapes and how the same city can appear to have a new face, according to the seasons or times of day. The artist prefers abstraction, which gives free rein to the viewer’s imagination. She paints by superimposing layers of paint, giving depth to her work.
