Steffi – Instructor
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 – unless inspiration strikes her to create something in a different medium! She has taught art lessons, both privately and in the classroom setting for the last 15 years.
She 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.
