In 2019 I changed my career dramatically from being a Chemist to becoming a Multi-Media Artist.
Spending time in an Artist Resideny in the vibrant city Barcelona/Spain reconnected my intense emotions with my creativity.
Later, I travelled to Iran and experienced warm-hearted hospitality yet sever restriction regarding self-expression.
The influence of different cultures and mind-sets is essential. I`m greatful for meeting people from all around the world and discussing life during my travels to 45+ countries within the last 20 years.
Growing up in Austria, living since more than 10 years in Switzerland and recently spending several months in Lisbon/Portugal has another strong impact.
My transformation also included learning about Photography, Video and Installations, how to create exhibitions in galleries and a museum. In 2021 I connected with web3 and the power of NFTs.
Most important of my journey are exploring sensuality, intimacy, femininity as a highly sensive person in many different facets.
Now I`m delighted to share my insights and help people to rediscover their strenghts during talks and workshops.

Two fluffy pink skies are within reach and invite to be touched. Delicately the feathers caress the skin. A brief, precious moment allows immersion in a sensual world. When the visitors climb the stairs, the rectangular, adapted and separated forms dissolve.
In their place come round feather cushions, which flow with playful ease from two sides to each other. They flow into each other and strive upwards together. This carries the symbolism of the unfolding of their higher selves and is considered the basis for true love.
