hello dear followers!
first of all i would like to wish everyone a happy new year! may you be healthy and content, may gratitude be a daily practise and may you remember that no matter what, God is always with you.. i wish you love & peace! and i thank you for following my work! 🙂
i would also like to share that i recently had my first exhibition here in Vienna, my hometown.. it was a beautiful experience to hear people appreciate my art, it was also very interesting to find out how different people perceive my work differently and what they see in it and what is the story they associate with it.. i loved every moment of the experience and i am very grateful to Rainer – organizer of the aart Eventraum where the exhibition took place – for his support and kind words! i am a very introverted person and shy about my work but he managed to find the perfect words to introduce people to what i do and how i do it and what it means to me.. thank you a lot!! 🙂
and what’s next for me? well lately i’ve been focusing more on creating coloring sheets, so this is why i haven’t been able to post much new work.. i can tell you though that one new drawing is already in the making and i’m hoping to finish it within the next weeks!
so stay tuned with me for yet another year! 🙂
i wish you all the best and thanks for being here,
i wanted to show you my 2 new coloring sheets plus a 3rd one which is still in the making.. let me know what you think? 🙂

hello and a happy new year first of all!! 🙂
i hope you had a nice transition into 2017, maybe did some letting go of the old and welcoming in the new energy of this fresh upcoming year.. let’s make it another good one!! for sure there will be plenty of amazing days and since life comes in waves, there will probably also be some not so happy days.. let’s remember to use everything as lessons on the path of our own evolution and see the message each situation potentially holds for us to step even deeper into who we are and our truth.. anyway i wish you all the best, happiness, health, love, joy, peace and wisdom and whatever else may fulfill your heart.. 🙂
that being said i would like to share a preview of my upcoming new coloring sheet that will be available for purchase on my gumroad page ~ click here to check out!

in the meantime you can warm yourself up with one of my other coloring sheets that are up on gumroad for the very accessible contribution of 1 euro each..
enjoy creating and have a happy blissful time!
love & hugs,
i’m happy to be able to share a new ‘making of’ with you – i finished a drawing that i’ve started end of march this year and it beautifully illustrates a very personal journey i’ve been undertaking all this time i was working on it..
as you can see, the drawing is made up of 2 mandalas which to me symbolize 2 souls.. i like to add twin flame references into my drawings so the mandalas are made of the exact same patterns and only differ in the way they are colored.. this stands for the 2 parts of the twin flame unit who are essentially one and the same soul and thus have the exact same energy frequency pattern and differ only in their individual manifestation during their present incarnation..
in the center of the drawing you can see what i call the ‘war zone’.. this stands for the fact that as long as we do not make peace with ourselves and with who we are and with all that we are, this inner conflict will always be manifested somewhere outside of us, separating us from others.. this is represented by the red/black sort of chains that always draw the two soul mandalas back into the war zone.. no matter how much we might want to be with someone, first we have to stop the war and conflicts inside ourselves and transcend and transform them, let go of limiting beliefs and ways of thinking that are not serving us any longer.. in order to be able to cultivate a lasting positive, loving, peaceful and useful relationship with another, the relationship with self has to come first..
on the top and bottom the two mandalas still merge into one.. this stands for the fact that all can be transformed and transcended if we are willing to do our inside job, and in the end and from a higher perspective we are all one always and whatever seemingly separates us here now on this earth plane is an illusion in the end.. love is always present and always working for us, even if sometimes the way is painful.. i have found that if i keep this in mind, it’s easier to at least find a peaceful and accepting outlook on difficult situations and use their lessons for my path in life and find my own inner peace with them at last..
when i started to draw this one, i was having unresolved conflicts within myself that i saw manifested outside of me but when i look back now on everything that has happened since then, i can see how much has been transformed and how much i was rewarded also by attracting many new and positive experiences and moments into my life.. inner work is not always easy and fun but it is always rewarding.. this i can honestly say after many years of trouble and transformation.. it has always been worth it and i’m ready and excited for whatever will be next because another thing that’s for sure is that this process never ends.. it only goes deeper and deeper.. 🙂
this drawing is very personal and dear to me and i am happy to share a bit more of its meaning and my story behind it.. i hope you like it and please feel free to comment, like & share my work.. thank you in advance and enjoy the gallery! 🙂
many hugs & love,
i want to share with you some impressions after playing with my newest toy.. 🙂
i hope you are all well and enjoying a lovely weekend.. maybe playing around a little too? 😉
hello dears 🙂
it’s time to share another making of with you.. this drawing is the only one i have finished this year so far.. i’m working on a few drawings simultaneously right now but i have set myself the goal to finish at least one more.. i got almost 3 months left to go! 😀
so this one was inspired by a very deep experience in my life that involved a lot of time, many feelings, a lot of inspiration and support and finally one of the most painful endings i have had to go through so far, this is also why i chose the long dramatic title.. i remember that it was intended to be a black and white drawing at first but in the end i saw the rainbow colors coming in.. now in retrospect i feel this symbolizes that no matter how much something hurts, there is always something new to follow.. no ending is absolute, it always also contains the seed of a new beginning and i feel this is what the coloring wanted to show me at the time: that amazing beautiful things are always available to me and waiting for me if i’m willing to let go of suffering and focus on them instead.. they are always there somewhere in the background, like the background colors in the drawing.. 🙂
if you’re going through a painful experience, just remember that nothing is the end ever! many times things have a hidden purpose that we are not able to see at the time but that will be revealed at some point.. remember that no matter what, you always have you and your connection to your higher self and source/universe/god and you are strong enough to deal with this life.. 🙂
keep going, keep moving forward even if slowly.. and now some impressions of the process and the final result.. i’d be very happy if you like/comment/share.. 😀
have a wonderful day! 🙂
today i wanna share the making of my drawing ‘athena’.. i’ve started it in 2014 during my very creative time in Bratislava.. i love to start new drawings, and in that time i had so many ideas in my head that i just kept starting and starting but finishing a drawing is a whole different story for me.. 😀 so some of my creations are still peacefully sleeping inside my art drawer, waiting for me to finally continue with them.. ‘athena’ got finished some time in 2015 actually but – shame on me – i forgot to upload her! better late than never, i share now a few pictures of the creation process in the gallery below, as well as the finished piece..
one thing i love about art is that it can represent and symbolize so many things depending on the person looking at it.. but i still wanna share my vision here: ‘athena’ to me represents a spaceship, the biggest spaceship belonging to an alien civilization that is watching over planet earth, protecting it and assisting the ascension of humanity.. the drawing represents what the ship would look like when i look up into the stars and see it somewhere out there.. because my style is very symbolic, it’s a symbolic representation.. the patterns also contain a kind of time tunnel or portal into another dimension or vibrational frequency, where this alien civilization operates.. very psychedelic, i know, haha 🙂
and the little cat you can see sleeping on my drawing table is my Frida.. 😀
if you wanna share with me what you see in the drawing, feel free to comment or write anytime.. now: pictures! enjoy! 😉
