Stylish Silk Swirls (black and white striped fabric)
I was born in Basel, 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.
I am originally a writer and have published several novels and literary essays and 2 volumes of poetry in German, my native language, but when I am not busy writing or being creative with my camera, I spend my time painting, using soft pastels or oil. Painting for me means exploring the interaction of colour and form in order to create particular moods. I find painting and photographing a very challenging a rewarding alternative to writing and am glad that the environment I live in gives me so much inspiration.
I exhibit locally but also in Geneva, Switzerland.
