|Steffi Schott pushes the encaustic medium
to its limits exploring the
material & its use in a wide range of styles from academic mannerist
to abstract. Her new work is always a pleasant surprise. Her has
developed a new way of Working that is " their ".

|Steffi Schott has a deep and personal
understanding of light
and space, of form and shape, of mood and landscape,
and combines this with a dark but playful imagination
and nuanced sense of humor.
This combination results in paintings that immediately engage
the viewer yet leave them with the sense of mystery, that there is a layered
and varied landscape of history underneath, that we may only guess at.
The combination of child-like,
storybook compositions with a technical mastery and a steady confidence
of the hand is endlessly intriguing and inspiring.
I studied painting at the Savannah College
