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 calm moments in nature or interesting details on travels.
Beauty for me also has something to do with shaping the mind: towards love, tolerance and faith. This is what I want to inspire with my graphic-design work.
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 place into your individual and personal feeling of “home”.
“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.”
Since my childhood I am always creative in one way or another. When I was very little I invented my own new words, which made my mum laugh. I loved to glamorize my homework with handdrawn patterns in primary school. In my teenage years I was a member of a dance & acrobatics group: we performed on stages for numerous various events, took part in the “World Gymnaestrada” and even made it into Austrian TV-Shows several times. When I was 18 I got my first small analog camera and I have been taking photos since then when time permits.
My professional training after high school and my subsequent years of work were as a construction draftsman and engineer.
Later I changed direction and decided to go to school again. I attended a graphic-design college and graduated with honors. Since 2004 I have been serving as a self-employed graphic-designer and have successfully completed countless projects for a wide range of different business customers.
In 2019 I felt the inner urge to concentrate more on my artistic side and to follow my path of the heart. That is why I founded vibes & shapes – my Onlineshop for unique and magical art prints and I am happy to support you in decorating, beautifying and individualizing your home! ♥
