Born in 1974 and native to Wuppertal, Germany, self-taught artist Yvette Endrijautzki immigrated to the United States in 2006. In 2009, she established her own artistically created studio and gallery, The Nautilus Studio, in the culturally bourgeoning Georgetown neighborhood. In addition to displaying Endrijautzki's own works, the gallery provided a unique forum for showcasing emerging and established artists. The gallery was featured in a design magazine (Houzz) in 2012, and won an award for the resourcefully sophisticated interior design, which was designed and executed by Endrijautzki.
In addition to building The Nautilus Studio, Yvette has been curating at many different venues on a monthly basis in coordination with the Seattle city art walks.
Yvette has been the art organizer and curator for Cloud Gallery since 2012, and also collaborates with other organizers, both locally and nationally, presenting exhibitions in different venues on a regular basis.
Since 2013, Yvette has been the assistant curator of KrabJabStudio facilitating art shows on a monthly basis focused on the publication arts that feature both local and international artists.
She taught assemblage workshops at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle in 2010 and 2011.
She is also the principal organizer of the Enlightenment Cabinet, a mobile exhibition with varied themes.
Her curated exhibitions often go against the grain of cultural trends, celebrating variety, the odd and bizarre, antiquity, the macabre, and a multitude of philosophies, challenging the viewer to consider new perspectives.

Hired by Dark Dune Productions, Yvette has created a temple prop for an upcoming puppet movie in 2016 :
”Yamasong”, produced by Sam Koji Hale and Heather Henson. Yvette has been creating several props for stage and short movies. Her stage work experience, mask and wig making knowledge stems from her apprentice ship in 1988 at the Opera in Wuppertal, Germany when famous dancer Pina Bausch was working with her dance ensemble.
In 2005 to 2007, Yvette also worked as a costume and prop maker for the world renown Pyro-tech Theater “Theater Titanick” in Leipzig and Muenster, Germany. Her former art and film experiences gained in her early youth were introduced through the “Medien Projekt Wuppertal”, a movie project located in her hometown where Yvette was partaking in claymation and shortmovies, winning several regional and national awards (1990-95).
In the meantime, Yvette accomplished a 2 1/2 year apprenticeship in typography and sign making at an advertisement company in her hometown, Wuppertal, Germany.
From 1998 to 2001, Yvette has been living in the French Alps and the Pyrenees, where she joined two alternative music and performance bands as a fire performer, juggler and singer in “Anima” and “Tromatism" both with former members of legendary Punk band “Bérurier Noir”.
Her knowledge of dance and acrobatics comes from a much disciplined background of a decade of professional training in Rhythmic Sport Gymnastics, where she competed in the junior national team in 1986.
In 1999-2000, she apprenticed bookbinding and the arts of paper mache by a private teacher in St.Dalmas.
In 2005, she completed an internship at the bookbinder factory and store 'Papp-o-mania' in Leipzig, and there she taught workshops for paper-making.
After touring and traveling most of Europe and North Africa, she finally decided to settle and spread her feelers in the heart of Seattle.
Since the beginning of 2016, Yvette has been visiting Pratt Art Institute for gaining more skills in metal smith work and jewelry making and is currently working on a new line of wearable arts, sculptural earrings
and artistic accessories.
Throughout the last 10 years, sculptural space has been Yvette's focus, and her use of recycled materials, found objects, and broken artifacts has challenged her to create something unique and unprecedented.
Always on the hunt for new techniques and the repurpose of new objects and materials, the creative process is not a regarded as choice, but rather the raison d' être for the artist, where she can lose and find herself.
An artist booklet of her recent body of work was published in 2015.
Since 2017, Yvette is studying 3Ds Max program, a 3D design program used in architecture and for 3D printing.
A new art project with female vocals NW rock band “Into the COLD” with singer Katy Cornell
and musician William Stover are in the making.
Another collaborative project with Seattle’s progressive rock band “Feeds On Majesty" is to be completed soon.
Since 2015, Yvette's collaboration project Farrago Spiritum Tarot, a tarot deck born out of an omnium-gatherum of images and symbolism, is in the making. Yvette's visions and interpretations are based on the body of acquired knowledge of American astrologer Raven Bella Zingaro.
