I am Swiss, born in Zurich and my painting studio is in Gland/Switzerland.


My artistic approach

Painting allows me to express what I cannot say in words. My raw material: the world of emotions, an ephemeral and delicate feeling. Looking at my works, I hope that the viewer feels real well-being and that his mind escapes whilst travelling in my art piece. The environment where I live, close to "Lake Léman"/Geneva, constantly nourishes my sensitivity and my strength of inspiration; they are the ones that allow me to focus on the positive side of things in life.

A creation always begins, for me, by a state of inner calm and meditative serenity. Once in front of the blank canvas, my gestures are rapid and not guided, spontaneous and fluid. I elaborate my artworks like a musical composition. The first layers are touches of Indian ink and then I ad gently, here and there, acryl colours, which I chose according to my emotions of the day. Dilutions are done, little by little, and Japanese rice paper absorbs the unpredictable liquids before they are completely diluted. Suddenly all kind of forms, butterflies, birds appear in an abstract way. That is the key moment where I have to decide how I would like to finish my art piece. There are several choices: canvas, non-transparent or transparent Plexiglas. This medium is my favourite. My graphic designer skills allows me to ad visuals into my paintings before printing and give a touch of humour, irony or simply harmony into the final version.

Next to my wall art I also specialize in creating, based on individual needs, interior accessories like carpets, coffee tables, cushions and wall paper.

This modern vision and way of working has allowed me to be solicited beyond Swiss borders and to successfully exhibit my art works in several cities like New York, Miami, Dubai, Paris, Osaka and South Korea. My artworks are truly a reflection of manifest universality, through which everyone may find his or her artistic vibration.
