About myself



I am a painter and printmaker. I was born in Chur, Switzerland in 1943 and I live in Urdorf, near Zurich. My work, flowing and changing images, is based on the harmony of colours, forms and lines. Whether painted in oil/egg tempera or executed as a print, they encourage associations with landscapes, bodies, and structures of nature. They open up the new, the unexpected and the fictional and so let free, floating pictures come into being, always in a delicate balance between the figurative and the abstract. The colours light up as church windows do, from the inside out.
