Meet the predecessor of www.marliesreiha.com. I built this site in 2011 when I just started out with web design and coding. I had just moved to the United Stated and wanted a website to display both my landscape architecture portfolio and my art work. Being a designer, I am quite particular about how things look and work. When I didn't succeed in finding a ready made theme that catered to my wishes and needs, I started teaching myself html and css to build exactly what I wanted. In the process, I found out that I enjoyed web design very much. Being completely new to coding, I was (and still am) intrigued by creating something visual through text input. Building a website is like a puzzle waiting to be solved.
