Zendot-3 Early in her artistic career, Steiger developed an interest in “color fragmentation,” juxtaposing strong colors using hard-edged shapes. In the mid-1970s, a visit to Mexico revealed her connection to the art of ancient cultures, which informed her own work and became a recurring theme.

Visiting spiritual Power Spots, or geographic sites charged with positive energy, has brought her in contact with the art of Aboriginal Australians, and the indigenous traditions of Africa and Asia, including Cambodia, Vietnam, India, the Himalayas, and Japan. The artists' travels, study, and life experiences in such places continue to be a strong influence and inspiration to her work.

In 1999 an extended art meditation brought on an intuitive transformation and a reflection of India's tantric traditions of circles and chakras, which eventually led to the completion of the ZEN DOT ENERGY series in 2004.
