Dream. Create. Live.

I am very pleased to tell you about my latest exhibition at Café Giaccomo in Bonn's city center! This remarkable location, very close to the historic Beethoven House, provides the perfect setting for my artwork.

Art and ambience

Café Giaccomo is not only known for its excellent coffee and cozy atmosphere, but also for its wonderful location close to the Beethoven House. The charming interior and warm atmosphere create a wonderful place to view my latest works over a delicious coffee. This is where art meets pleasure and invites you to take a break from everyday life and immerse yourself in the world of Victoria Hilbrecht's art.

What can you expect?

In this exhibition I will be showing a diverse selection of my latest alcohol ink works. From colorful motifs to detailed works and abstract compositions - each artwork tells its own story and reflects my passion for color and creativity.

It's well worth a visit!

In addition to the opportunity to experience my artworks live, Café Giaccomo is a great place to linger over a cup of coffee or a piece of cake and enjoy the creative atmosphere. It's the perfect place to get inspired and perhaps discover a work of art or two for your own home.

Practical information

I cordially invite you to come by and enjoy the art. Your support means a lot to me and I look forward to you stopping by.

My recommendations for June:


Gift ideas: Handmade watercolors (metallic paints, honey paints and more)

In a world characterized by mass production and fast-paced consumption, handmade gifts stand out due to their uniqueness and personal touch. Handmade watercolors are one such gift idea that not only makes artists' hearts beat faster, but also conveys a deeper meaning.

Uniqueness and quality

Every handmade watercolor is unique. The careful selection of the best pigments and natural binders results in a color quality that industrial products often do not achieve. These colors are not only vibrant and radiant, but also long-lasting, so that the recipient will enjoy them for a long time.

A personal touch

A gift that has been made with love and care shows the recipient that you have put some thought into it. Handmade watercolors are more than just a practical gift - they are an expression of appreciation and recognition for the recipient's artistic passion.

Creative experience

Handmade watercolors offer a unique creative experience. Using these paints allows the artist to discover and enjoy the special properties and depth of the handmade pigments. It is a gift that not only has material value, but also provides inspiring moments and creative freedom.


In times of increasing environmental awareness, sustainability is an important factor. Handmade watercolors are often produced in small batches and pay attention to environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. This makes them a more environmentally friendly choice compared to mass-produced products, especially when chemicals are not used in preservatives.

Variety and individuality

The variety of handmade watercolors, from bright primary colors to special metallic and shimmer effects, offers something for every taste and style. You can put together an individual set that is perfectly tailored to the preferences and needs of the recipient.

Emotional connection

A gift that encourages and inspires creativity creates a special emotional connection. It shows that you support and appreciate the recipient's artistic ambitions and dreams. Handmade watercolors are therefore a gift that will be remembered for a long time and bring joy again and again.

In my online store you will find a wide selection of handmade watercolors that are ideal as a gift. Discover the beauty and uniqueness of these colors and give your loved ones a very special treat.

PS: There are also gift cards that you can give to your loved ones.
