Steffen has during the years developed a very personal and confident style that always reflects a strong personal commitment and fascination in his pictures. Steffen has a clear and positive identity as an artist.
Steffen’s drawings are often base on sketches from inspirational trip.

Steffens images are characterized by the very strong contour line.
