has achieved great success in New Zealand since arriving 2 years ago from Germany. She
is passionate about her work and loves to create. Being raised as the great
granddaughter of Franz von Defregger, Stephanie spent her life immersed in art. Her
journey as an artist began early, her career as a painter started 2003.
Stephanie enjoys life and her love for beauty, harmony and balance can be found
everywhere in her work. Vibrant colours, energetic structures and the concept of variety
form the basis of her stunning artwork.
Stephanie has the ability to see themes in nature others do not see at first sight and
succeeds in visualising them to the observer. She often paints in multiple layers and even
though the first colour layers are then mostly invisible, they are important for the whole art
Her work is “joyful, unique and rare”.
Stephanie Defregger lives and works in Wanaka, South Island. She is represented in several
galleries in New Zealand and also shows her artwork in solo exhibitions, group exhibitions
and auctions. Her clients are from all over the world.
Working with the best material is a matter of course. Therefore she uses only finest
ingredients: high quality acrylics, cotton canvas and lots of TLC.
Stephanie is aware that buying artwork is special. Meet the artist in her studio in central
Wanaka by appointment or enjoy the possibility that she comes with the artwork into your
home. Note that payments by installments are possible.
Another philosophy is that the money will be refunded if the artwork does not fit into your
home. For her, your personal satisfaction and enjoyment are paramount. To this day there
have been 100% happy clients.
Stephanie also does commission work and has additionally the unique offer to paint live at
an event and capture the atmosphere in an artwork. Ask for special arrangements and
enjoy an artistic highlight at your event.
