Birgit Stauch was born with a fascination for form and design. She was the daughter of a master sculptor and stonemason and thus, grew up surrounded by sculptures.
Initially trained as a form designer, she also devoted herself to sculpture and took lessons from renowned artists such as Arno Breker and Richard Alexander Agricola. Stauch worked for many years as a sculptor and designer in an art foundry and was also a freelance artist. In 1996, she successfully set up her own business.
