I was born and raised in Switzerland. In 1996 I immigrated with my wife and our three children to Canada and since live and work on a organic cattle ranch near Goodfare AB in the Peace Country. During the long Canadian winters I found time for a hobby that turned into passion. Mostly self taught, studying art books and magazines and attending workshops when there is a opportunity, I progressed from photography to drawing to painting. Most of the time I paint in watercolour which I love for the transparency and fluidity. Lately I started exploring other media like oil, acrylic and pastel. Who knows where it takes me from here.
I find inspiration for my paintings everywhere I look, but my favorite subjects are landscapes, water and florals.
i give my paintings one more personal touch by building most of the frames myself.
I show my work in various solo and group shows throughout the region. In participating in juried shows and competitions I was honored with several prestigious awards.
Being an active member of various organizations including Beaverlodge Art Society, Peace Watercolour Society , Grande Prairie Figure Drawing Group and the Federation of Canadian Artists helps me staying connected to the art world.
