As an artist, Stefanie uses myriad media, materials and tools to create her multi-layered works. Among other things, she uses synthetic resins, structural materials, mixed media, wood or papers. For the application, she uses her hands, brushes and spatulas – and containers from which she lets the resin flow. This flowing combines with the haptic work on the painting surface to create a visual harmony that distinguishes her artworks, making them unique and recognisable. The viewer also discovers details of oil pastels, tar, rust or painted layers as well as spray paint. The multi-dimensionality arises in the process: Stefanie works on her pictures, removes, grinds and polishes until the result is coherent.
She draws inspiration for her works from nature, more precisely from the four elements of water, air, earth and fire. She thus sets a counterpoint to the hectic and urban entrepreneurial life. During the Corona pandemic, she adds a fifth element to her work, which she calls urban. Modern graffiti art and street art elements interrupt the enforced silence of the lockdown.
