Swiss by birth and upbringing, I have lived in England most of my adult life. I studied Fine Art at the Bristol School of Art and now live and work in Cornwall.

Using texture, random marks or especially music to prompt a spontaneous response and evoke memories, I work intuitively in oils and acrylics to create abstracted images of landscapes, drawing attention to those often subtle moments where ‘otherness’ can be encountered.


The body in movement is also a constant theme in my work. To me, the physical body is only one aspect of our presence in the world, holding within it the vast, yet hidden complexity of thought, imagination and its spiritual connections, which I seek to reflect in my work.


I think that art can help us be at peace with ourselves and others, perhaps, in some small measure, giving us signposts and images to help us make better sense of life.
