I was born in Switzerland where I studied architectural design. In Canada I later persued studies in graphic design and worked as a commercial artist.
Since completing a Visual Arts degree (UVic) I have experimented in a variety of mediums painting landscapes, still life, and portraiture in particular. These I execute spontaneously from life, mainly in pastels, in rapid renderings to instill a sense of immediacy, to capture the feeling and mood of the particular moment.
