About

DECASA was founded in 2012 by us, Carola and Sabrina Deutsch, with the desire for self-realisation and artistic freedom. As sisters, we not only share the same surname, but also the sense of individuality and aesthetics. This common view into the future shines in a wide range of colours and is not limited by conventional expectations.

Our portfolio includes elaborate product designs, large-scale street-art projects, works of art on canvas as well as expressive tattoos.

Together we and our initials design, as the name suggests, "in the manner of the house".

Carola & Sabrina Deutsch

Nach Art des Hauses

Since 2018 we have a new home base at the Glockenspielplatz 5 in the heart of old town Graz (Austria). The studio boasts a fantastic view of the castle hill, the landmark of our city, as well as 105 m2 full of works of art and an in-house studio, in which we can fully unfold. 

Carola is the artistic side of DECASA and a creative exceptional talent. She was born with paintbrushes and paints, and nothing and nobody is safe from her ideas. Under the title "Living Art" she brings static works of art to life on the skin of collectors, giving the word "body art" a complete new meaning. International invitations have been on the agenda, since Carola was nominated for “Best Female Artist” at the Tattoo Industry Awards in the UK in 2017. 

DECASA views itself as a modern collective of artists, in which due to the professionalism also a lot of organisation and management are on the agenda. These tasks are among the work of Sabrina. In addition to her role as an organisational acrobat, she also brings much passion for creativity onboard the MS DECASA. Sabrina's heart beats for graphic and product design, technical editing, photography and social media. She takes care of the maintenance of all the cog wheels that keep a company alive and running.

Both of us graduated from HTL Ortwein School for Art & Design, Sabrina chose the graphic and communication design branch, Carola for product design and presentation, followed by a two-year painting master-class. Prior to starting our own business, Sabrina was the Art Director in the advertising agency INTOUCH and Carola was responsible for decoration and store design at Lena Hoschek .

Together, we and our initials form the creative studio DECASA and, as the name implies, we design "home-style".
