The author

Dr Birgit Stegbauer studied art history at the universites of Regensburg, Trieste in Italy and Hamburg. Since 2009 she has lived with her husband and their two sons (8 and 11) in Villach. The German family recently spent two years in the USA and made it their aim to learn as much as possible about the country and people. The family's investigative expeditions have produced monuments of art, portraying both historical places and the countryside, which converge to create a contemporary feeling of the new world.
