“Beauty is what drives me. Yet in my photographic intent it is not something I aim to ‘make up’ artificially. Rather I want to make beauty visible where it already exists: authentic, natural and perfectly imperfect. This kind of beauty can be seen with an open heart. I mostly capture magical moments in nature or on travels.
Beauty for me also has something to do with developing mind and soul: towards love, peace and faith. This is what I want to inspire with my graphic-design work.”
Ines, Artist & Shop Owner
My Meaning of Home
“Home” is something deeply essential for me, maybe because I am starsign cancer. “Home” means to me a feeling of well-being, coziness and a safe haven. Ideally a home is relaxing, inspiring and beautiful – so you can rise up like a phoenix from the ashes every day.
With my products I’d love to help you transform your home into a paradise-like place full of love, wonder and magic.
“My aim is to create something beautiful, heart-warming and unique.
Uplifting vibes & captivating shapes are merged together to products for your home or office or as gifts for your loved ones.”
I’ve been creative in one way or another since I was a kid. When I was very young, I made up my own words that made my mother laugh. In elementary school, I loved decorating my homework with hand-drawn patterns. As a teenager, I was a member of a dance and acrobatics group: we performed on the stage at various events, took part in the “World Gymnaestrada” and were even featured in Austrian TV shows several times. When I was 18, I got my first camera, which was still analog at the time, and fell in love with the world of beautiful pictures.
My professional training after high school and my following years of work were as a construction draftsman and construction engineer. In addition to accuracy and precision, I got to know the beauty of architecture and interior design.
With my personal development, my direction changed later and I decided to go to school again. I completed a graphic design college and graduated with honors. I have been working as a freelance graphic designer since 2004 and have successfully completed countless projects for a wide variety of business customers.
In 2020 I felt the inner urge to connect all my passions and talents and to follow the path of my heart. That is why I founded vibes&shapes – my online shop for unique and magical art prints and I am happy to support you in terms of energetically upgrading your home!
