My name is Vera Machourek and in my profession as a freelance designer with my own design studio MACREATE
based in Cologne/Germany, I focus on designing prints & patterns mainly for the fashion and textile sector. While doing this I need to keep an eye on the design to ensure the outcome is commercial and „beautiful“. As an artist, my focus is predominantly set on the expressions and emotions that a person would rather hide from the outside world. Thus, my abstracted figurative motifs may sometimes seem a bit confusing. I find the visual expression of, for example, loss or transience has its own very special beauty. The combination of all emotions, positive or negative, makes life so wonderfully colorful and exciting!
