I was born on 25. 3. 1964 and grew up in Bern Switzerland

Art has always been the way in which I have expressed myself. It accompanies
me on my journey of life. Through my paintings I explore the New that is
often uncomfortable, at times exciting or even thrilling, waiting to be put
on canvas and conversely looking from the canvas right back at me. It forces
me to stay in the present time from which there is no escaping.

I often feel like a gipsy on the road, looking for something though I know
not what. All I know is that I am on the road. There is a great satisfaction
when I discover the New or when I am able to express myself fully on my
canvas.

I finished my Fine Art studies at Parsons School of Design in New York City
in 1993. I lived 7 years in the art maze of Manhattan and Washington DC. I
did further studies at New York State University at New Paltz. At that time
I lived and worked in Woodstock surrounded by many extraordinary artists.

In 1997 I moved to Switzerland with my first son Aurel for two years. Then
my journey led me to Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. In Taos I found an art
community where I was surrounded by amazing artists and wild nature. I lived
and worked there for nine years. A year ago I came back to Switzerland to
stay with my son Indigo and husband who checked the spelling on this page,

I am excited and grateful to be part of ArtPosition09.
