DO WHAT YOU LOVE
My art journey started in 2018 (I was 27) when I quit my full-time job as a graphic designer. I felt more and more frustrated with client work and began questioning if this was the life I truly wanted. The Great Pan Studio was born.
Surrounded by the natural beauty of Salzkammergut's lakes, mountains, and diverse wildlife, I find endless inspiration for my work.
My perfect day starts with green tea and sunrise yoga. When I‘m not making art I like to bake, tidy up and organize, listen to podcasts or simply have a chilling time with my loved ones. 🖤
Linocut is a relief printing process and is similar to woodcutting. It's basically an expanded version of a potato print 😉 See below for my process.
Starting with the simplest tools and materials, I currently have the following equipment:
- Linoleum: Softcut 3mm
- Carving tools: Swiss Pfeil Tools
- Paper: handmade paper
- Color: mainly Caligo Safe Wash Relief Color
- Printing press: A4 Fome Etching Press and A2 Woodzilla Press
The name is derived from the Greek shepherd god Pan. In Greek mythology he is the protector of forests, meadows and nature.
Depicted as a hybrid of a human torso and a billy goat, names derived from him can even be found in our language: the pan flute and the word “panic”.
The world of gods and spirits has fascinated me for a long time - the mysticism behind it and the unknown. This is the magic of life.
And yes, the “studio” points to my vision of one day having a large, real studio full of creative possibilities! With shop, workshops and and and 🖤

To me, leaving a lovable environment for future generations is crucial. So, I prioritize an ecological approach in my products and corporate philosophy. Therefore my packaging is plastic-free, I pay attention to natural materials and their origin.
Privately, as a second hand shopper, I aim to minimize waste and handle food responsibly.
