Did you collect random stickers as a child? Did you keep them in a sticker book? Do you remember how colourful and busy the filled up pages looked? Maybe you also remember these insanely busy illustrations from Seek-And-Find Books like “Where is Waldo”. And there was this popular children’s tv show when I was little called “Siebenstein”, have you heard of that one? It tells the story of a woman living in an antique/second hand shop together with some other quirky characters like her troublemaking pet raven “Rudi”. The enchanted clutter of their living space inspires countless stories and adventures and draws lots of interesting new characters into her life, many of which turn into friends.

Put all of the above together and you have a pretty accurate picture of what my studio space, my sketchbooks and the inside of my head looks like.

I am Stefa, a multidisciplinary artist from Hamburg, Germany. I work with acrylic paints on canvas, illustrate, stitch, tuft and sculpt. Whatever medium translates my idea best I run with. Abstract brush strokes and geometric shapes are combined with painted scenes and objects straight from my daily life and turned into surreal patchworks, dancing on the line of truth and make believe.
