"What a gift art is!
Expressing the beauty of thoughts
through pictures is true magic."

The Gift that Changed my Life

On my 13th birthday I received a unique gift from my parents. I wasn't aware of the impact it would have on my future development: my very first computer.

Astonished by a mechanical thing called "mouse" I selected an icon representing a painter’s palette and a brush. The clever detectives amongst you probably guessed the name of this program, right? - Exactly, ladies & gentlemen, I am talking about "Paint".

A window popped up and a white canvas opened in front of my eyes. Fascinated by the mouse enabling me to draw lines, I thought: "This is magic". I remember how excited I was when I drew my first male portrait. Probably I don't have to explain that this portrait looked quite terrible. I even drew a disgusting snot with an even more disgusting greenish tone, dripping from the poor man's nose... this portrait was my very first artistic expression, I guess. So there it was: my first portrait of a comic man who obviously had a bad cold.

After finishing this hilarious portrait I noticed that I could also fill the voids with colours. Moreover, I could partially erase the image and mix colours together. This was definitely heaven. A colourful heaven without limits and I was the happiest girl because I discovered the art and possibilities of digital art.

The Beginning of Selling my Art

home decor & wall art

In 2015 a fellow artist asked me if I was a member of SOCIETY6. I looked up inquiringly at him: „No, I don’t like cults“. After his hysterical laugh I realised that I should have known better. He explained that is a creative marketplace where artists sell their own designs on various products such as phone cases, wall tapestries, towels and much more.

I confess my skepticism at first but it turned out to be the wisest decision to join. At that point I was working on finding my own individual digital style, experimenting a lot but focussing on digital portraits. Success seemed an implausibility but after a while I started to sell my first designs. Each individual sale was a big motivation to try new designs. Carefully observing the colours and objects that were positively received by the audience, I started to create vintage vector art.

Deeply pleased with this kind of style, I was more than happy to notice the increasing number of people enjoying . I received lovely messages from people telling me to keep up the good work.

Thank you all for your amazing encouragement!

The Impact of Online Marketing

I have a confession to make. I really didn’t enjoy online marketing... sorry, I hated online marketing. At that point I haven't even joined social media except . After reading several posts of successful artists I forced myself into this subject. I realised the importance of this step, so let’s begin: A friend of mine told me about and all I could understand was hashtag. After finding out about #thosestrangecrossedlines I gave it a go. I prepared my profile as well as colourful advertisements for my products. Then, ladies and gentlemen, the magic happened again and a motivated angels’ choir was singing "Halleluja": I actually started to enjoy online marketing. Lovely people from around the world began to follow me on various platforms; even art blogs shared my work or even inquired for an interview. Well, I guess I have another confession make: I really like online marketing... sorry, this is definitely a lie too, I practically love online marketing. Angels, go and sing the tune, would you! :)

Besides creating digital artwork I am currently working in an art publishing company. In my free time I collect ideas for new digital works and take photographs together with my husband. Every new artwork - digital art or a photography - is published in my on my website as well as on my social media platforms. - So stay tuned and don’t miss my for exciting news!

I only pause my work for longer offroad and camping tours or short city trips with my amazing husband or lovely friends. I think it is absolutely important to collect moments due to their inspirational nature - the foundation of creating new artwork! Besides, striving for personal growth and improvement is very important to me. This development is only possible when we all step out into the world, talk to interesting people and really "feel" our life. Meditation, good tea and sports like swimming and cycling are a good way to pause and regain energy, too.
In the period between September and December I am very busy, so there might be less new artworks in those months.

Art is a fantastic way to experience creativity and new ideas. There have been so many interesting technical developments throughout history and I am looking forward to recognise in a few years, that even the point right now is just the beginning of something even more magical!
