My name is Katharina Wraubek and I am a freelance set and costume designer, currently based in Graz, Austria.
In my work I try to realize plays and operas with a lot of sensitivity, without compulsive modernization. I am much more interested in the timeless message contained in the stories and how to bring it out in a way that touches and moves people.
In addition to my theater work, I spend my time drawing, painting and working on graphics and illustrations. I am interested in scenes from everyday life and their fusion with the inner world.
