Beautiful & personal /// As a gift or for yourself.

It all started with the question: How do I show photographs if I don't want to stick them in an album?
This gave rise to the idea of producing and offering these photos as illuminated images. That was the beginning of my shop.

This has long since become much, much more. It is no longer just photographs, but graphics, samples, illustrations and everything that can be used to tell a picture idea / picture story.
Today, the illuminated images have become T-shirts, watch bracelets, mugs, mobile phone stands and much more. All objects of a personal everyday life. The motifs range from beautiful memories, interesting perspectives on life, travel memories to confrontations with current topics, sometimes happy and humorous, sometimes affected and sad.

Seen in this way, the shop is more of an exhibition, a kind of creative diary.
