and thank you for visiting my website. As you've clicked the "About" page, you probably want to know more about Evolving You Art Design and the person behind it, right?!
Well, Evolving You Art Design is about YOU! It is a resource for aspiring people to express what they feel to be most valuable in their lives right now. For those who want to tell their story. About their evolvement. Through creativity. Through exclusive design. Through pure silver. I love to create real, tangible value for and with my clients. Something that has true meaning for them, that is connected to their core strengths, that expresses their vision and hope and serves as the most precious anchor. Something that holds even more than the sheer material value of the pure silver we use.
My professional background is as multifaceted as are my creations and the term "multipassionate entrepreneur" might as well have been invented for me ;-) For a long time I thought I had to focus only on one of my many interests in my life and my business. However, choosing only one thing to move forward with felt like choosing only one limb to walk with. Very painful indeed. Like building barriers in a freely flowing river. It took a while, yet once I acknowleged that this austerity on creativity is not who I am, I started to fully use my strength of being a lifelong learner and teacher, drawing my energy from connecting people, inspiration, knowledge and expertise from all different trades.
Maybe you're interested in some facts and figures? Let me give you a rough overview with the major milestones in my life. And if you're interested in a specific aspect of my CV, I'm happy to share more details with you!

Throughout my life, simply ‘seeing’ people has always played an extremely significant role for me. Of being aware and paying attention. I love witnessing what makes people smile, I love visualizing and realizing their dreams together, I love encouraging them to follow their inner truth, to be the designer of their own lives and to find a way to express that in a unique fashion. Capturing the light and hope and reflecting it back brings immeasurable joy for both sides.
No matter in what part of your story you are right now, whether you look at it from a personal or a business point of view, it is always about the person right in the middle of it. About You.
