Contemporary artist, Germany
Born in Bielefeld, North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, Steffie Hornig (1993) is a true equestrian. After studying fine art at the International School in Prague she continues to cultivate her passion for art, combining it with her love for horses. Open-minded and very creative, her work displays all these attributes!
'Horses show me their great beauty and every single one has such a unique personality. That is also why I like to visit a horse before painting it. I believe that a photograph does not always capture their personality. Seeing a horse in real life allows you to feel it, observe its characteristics and personality. There is so much about horses that often can only be experienced when spending time with them, and it is then my job to try to choose a composition and a focus that portrays and does justice to this.'
