Uncorked Staff Spotlight
This week we celebrate Steffi Park Eger!
Art has been a part of Steffi’s life since she can remember. When she was eight years old, she told her parents that she was going to be an artist when she grew up. Her parents enrolled her in an art class to see if she was serious. She has studied art ever since. She took private art lessons through high school, and in her undergraduate work, studied commercial art and graphic design.
Steffi holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications with a Commercial Art concentration. She developed a love of photography, and in her graduate work, studied that craft and honed her skills with the camera and in the darkroom. In 2009, she completed her Master of Arts in Humanities with a Fine Art emphasis. Her present work is centered mostly in oil painting and black and white photography. She has taught art lessons, both privately and in the classroom setting for the last 15 years, and we are lucky to have her as part of the Uncorked Artist’s family. She has been with The Uncorked Artist since we first opened on April 1, 2012.
Steffi has no choice but to make art. It comes from inside her, inspired by nature, mood, and inner thoughts. Her goal is to show others not only what she sees in the world, but more importantly, how she see the world. Steffi is an incredible talent with a mind made for creating. She is also an avid runner and hiker who loves the outdoors. She appreciates the world as it should be, to be experienced.
