Based in United Kingdom
I was born Switzerland, but have spent most of my adult life travelling and living in various Asian countries, such as Nepal, Pakistan and Thailand, before I finally settled down in Somerset in 2009. I now live right in the heart of the little market town of Wellington and finally have a studio of my own where I can paint and hold exhibitions.
Painting for me means exploring the interaction of colour and form in order to create particular moods, mostly of places I find especially beautiful and worth capturing to share with viewers.
Above all, though, painting is also an experiment, a challenge and a journey into the unknown. I am always open to trying out new techniques and using new materials, which means that over the years I have developed different styles according to what I want to express and with which materials I am working.
I price my work taking into consideration the cost of the material, the time it takes to create a painting from sketching to varnishing (except with pastels, of course, where varnishing doesn't apply) and to a lesser extent the size. My aim is to strike a balance between creating affordable art and being able to continue buying the material I need for my art.
I exhibit locally but also in Geneva, Switzerland; a solo exhibition in the Wharf Gallery in Tavistock, Devon, is scheduled for summer 2020, but I suppose, due to the current situation, that it will be postponed until next year.
In the meantime I continue to paint...
