I grew up in Switzerland and traveled in my young years extensively through Europe and North Africa. In 1993 my husband, our two sons and I immigrated to Alberta, Canada. Since 2010 I have lived and worked in Osoyoos, in beautiful British Columbia.
I started with soapstone carving in 2000 and in 2013 I discovered my love for painting. I began with painting acrylics, soon after adding watercolor and some other media.
I attended many workshops receiving instruction from Bonny Roberts, Dianne Bersea, Sandra Albo, Alice Core, Denise Soule, Sue Whittaker, Valerie Rogers, Peter Scott, Paul Butvila and Terry Isaac. They have encouraged me to pursue painting and other forms of art, as well as inspired my work.
My love for all creatures – people, animals and plants – the beauty of nature with all the colors, sounds, smells, tastes and shapes, is expressed in my art.
I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Osoyoos Art Gallery, the Artists on Main, Osoyoos, the Osoyoos and Districts Arts Council and a member of the Artist’s Co-operative of the Okanagan Art Gallery . There I have a permanent exhibition of paintings and soapstone works.
My work has shown in galleries, restaurants and wineries throughout the Okanagan Valley and is in the homes of art collectors in Canada and Europe.
