Born in Bern, Switzerland. Works and lives in Oxford, UK.
Every piece of art is a self-portrait. But then again, it’s the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
When painting, the canvas is your space where you can be yourself, let your hair down, try anything and explore every possibility. Hope for happy accidents and let the painting take you to a place you didn’t know existed. Don’t be afraid to fail. The only difficulty is knowing when to stop.
Representational and abstract art are not opposing styles and can co-exist. Abstraction may represent feelings or the unconscious, and representational art has to work on an abstract level of colours and shapes.
Together with a group of other artists, I run open studio life drawing sessions in Oxford (OX4 Life).
