Katherine Steffes

I am a 29-year-old self-taught artist who resides in Colorado with my husband and three Children. I have been creating art all my life.  I grew up with a very artistic and creative family that encouraged me to develop my talents.  I have always been into fantasy of all kinds.  All of my sculptures are completely hand made from polymer clay without the use of any molds.  I often sell my sculpture on Ebay (seller name: EnchantedBeings) to help pay for my many medical bills and copays for medications.  I was born with a life threatening disease called Cystic Fibrosis that is slowly destroying my lungs and my digestive system.  My Art is a release from the real world.  A world of pain, hospital stays, medications and the fear of leaving my family.  In my art I loose myself and can forget all that.  It is soothing and therapeutic.  My desire to create is just as strong as my desire to breath and in my creations a part of me will survive.
