BIOGRAPHYI started my career with an apprenticeship as gardener and continued to an education as a florist.
After my practice-years in different stores in and outside of Austria, I got self-employed with "Floristik Obendrauf" in Graz.
Beside my stores, it gives me great joy to do various shows and seminars. I also occasionally take part in competitions.
I am fascinated by the beauty of nature: flowers, plants and fruits. My greatest passion is to turn this wonderful splendour into floristic works of art. This craft allows me to spotlight the beauty and diversity of nature by means of the interaction of colour and form.
