Claire Harris

DIRECTOR - Flinders Lane Gallery, Melbourne.

Steffie’s work is deceptively simple. Its effectiveness is the omission of elements and I think she has done a beautiful job of capturing the moment of a sandstorm and that subsequent murkiness of vision. It is a lovely atmospheric work that captures a participatory experience of a natural event.

DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

With the majority of interior trends at present tinged with cool greys, teals and navy, this painting is a potential warm welcome to a contemporary room design. The large scale would bring a rustic feel to a hard-edged interior, making it a contrasting feature. I adore Steffie’s restricted use of elements maintaining an elegance and sense of luxe.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

The work’s gradation from dark to light guides your eye from bottom to top, highlighting the beautiful movement within the piece. It could complement any room in a home with refined and soft furnishings. It could also work really well paired with a figurative bronze sculpture, imitating similar movement so the works talk to one another. Very dynamic.
