Sara Steffens is a St. Louis native. She received her Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts with a emphasis in Photography and a Minor in Art History at Missouri State University in Springfield of 2014. Additionally she had the pleasure of working with a lead photographer in advertisement and a curator of a museum. Sara also attended a semester in Florence, Italy at Santa Reparata International School of Arts for photography and mixed media. Sara drew inspiration from the diverse cultures presented in Italy. At the end of the semester, Sara had an exhibition containing portraits of strangers she met on the streets of Italy. Her most recent photography exhibit, My Room, consisted of intimate portraits of children in their rooms. This exhibition centered on bringing back feelings of nostalgia, imagination, and space for the viewer. Steffens is immensely delighted to have accepted the position of Director for The Arts Council of the Southeast Region. It is her prerogative to fill out the mission of the council, provide opportunities to artists, and be a main resource for artists in our region.
