Born in 1951 in Zurich.
The affinity for art was practically ingrained in me through my parents, my father a graphic artist and painter, and my mother a talented amateur painter. My relationship with painting evolved from the first brushstrokes in my childhood home, through painting and drawing courses at the Rudolf Steiner School in Zurich, to later experimental phases where I explored a variety of techniques and materials.
From 1977 to 2015, I worked full-time in Swiss civil aviation. Nevertheless, my passion for art never left me. During numerous travels and stays abroad in the early years of my aviation career, I primarily dedicated myself to photography. However, museums and galleries around the world always fascinated me.
In the 1990s, alongside photography, my creative work increasingly shifted back to painting and designing figurative objects. Since then, I have continued to develop my skills in acrylic, oil, and mixed media through specialized literature and training courses.
Since my retirement at the end of February 2015, I have worked as a freelance painter and sculptor in Lufingen in the Zurich lowlands.
My works don’t adhere to a specific style; “out of the box” probably describes it most accurately. In addition to my past experiences and techniques, I am continually drawn to exploring new paths, trying out different styles, materials, and elements.
