2000: Diploma in art history, in Graz in Styria, Austria. The theme of my diploma thesis was Carlo Scarpa and the beginnings of modern museum adaptions.

1999 to 2002 I worked in EU-R&D projects for the digitization of cultural heritage. This great experience was followed by three very valuable years at renowned

Galerie Eugen Lendl (www.eugenlendl.com, Austrian and international contemporary art).

2006 – 2008:  studies for Dr. phil. (PhD) in art history. Besides the theme of my thesis – "The aura of art history. The influence of art history on other scientific subjects" – I focused on courses in classical modern and contemporary art.

In 2017 I became self-employed. In doing so, the companies of my spouse Sven Pio von Thun-Hohenstein, Galerie Thun-Hohenstein (Klagenfurt, Austria) and I.A.T.& Gallery GmbH (Munich, Germany) are my exclusive co-operation partners.
