Steffie is the Chairman and main organizer of "Højer Art Jam"

After 25 successful years, in 2017, Steffie became the chairman and main organizer of the Højer internationale traeskulptur symposium, taking over the baton from her father. In only one year the original symposium was transformed and developed into a multidisciplinary art event, in 2018, including different art forms. At the same time, the art event had a name change, making it’s image more international and modern. Højer Art Jam is built on 25 years of wood sculpture symposiums in Højer, and is now containing a bigger range of different materials and art forms. In 2018 the Art Jam was presenting not only wood sculptures, but also murals, fine-art photography and installation art. At the same time the Art Jam opened a sculpture park in the heart of Højer. It is Steffie’s hope that the Art Jam will continue to grow in the future, including an even bigger range of materials and art forms.

Steffie is the Curator of "Kunsten Gallery"

Kunsten Gallery is situated in Denmark and is hosting different exhibitions during the year. The gallery is presenting professionally made artworks in many different materials and by both national and international artists. The gallery has presented both mixed- and solo exhibitions. It is always a high priority to make the surrounding scenery fit the purpose, and help showing the best version of the presented artworks. The composition and presentation of the works is also a high priority in order to make the best possible outcome of an art show at Kunsten. When selecting artworks for exhibitions it is vital for Steffie, that the whole picture is coming together.

Steffie is the Curator of “Artist in Residence” programs

The “Artist in Residence” programs are organized and curated by Steffie. Well-recognized and internationally respected artists from different countries are invited to attend art programs in Denmark. During the stay they create artworks from different materials and become a part of the local community for a period of an average of 4 weeks. It is a developing process both culturally and artistically - both for the curator, the artists and the community. The art programs are ending with an exhibition of the artworks made during the residence.
