Born in Bielefeld, North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, on November 18th, 1993, Steffie Hornig is a true horse girl. 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 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.”
“My objective is to capture the personality of a horse in a painting, not just a moment.”
“I also often like to work using a cut-out format. I love to focus on details. I’m quite the perfectionist and known to remember and observe details even in daily life. In my paintings I like to focus on details too, which helps attract the focus of the observer to a specific area and vision. In our fast-moving world, we tend to lose our focus on these aspects and I wish to draw attention to details and emotions. Getting to spend as much time with horses as I do is a privilege I believe and my paintings are a way of sharing my perspective of them with others.”
