Born in Valais (Switzerland) in 1970, I obtained a Masters in Architecture in 1997. After various professional experiences, in 2002, I became interested in social sciences,  leading to achieving a Bachelor , in this subject,  from The University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Western Switzerland, in 2006. While I continued to deepen my knowledge of human functioning through various continuing education courses, I remained passionate about art and spent a large proportion of time developing and intensifying  creative practice, devoting myself, with passion and seriousness to regular artistic production. 

 

Various complementary courses, workshops and master classes in drawing, painting, calligraphy and ceramics confirmed my affinities and enhanced my skills. An activity as an illustrator for a small newspaper  also enriched my experience. 

 

Travelling and meeting people have left a lasting impression on my memory and have influenced my work heavily. The memories, impressions and experiences  brought back from Australia, Vietnam, China, Morocco and Spain are dominant in my artistic influence. 

 

Multiple artists have also made a very strong impression on me and my work during my artistic journey, I would mention Yamanobe Hidaeki, Christian Hetzel, Pierre Soulage, Lawrence Carroll, Su Xiaobai, Mark Rothko, Robert Ryman, Lee Ufan, David Ostrowski, Edouardo Chilida, the list is not exhaustive! 

 

Thanks to regular investment, my work evolves in a constant exploration. I exhibit professionally, on a regular basis; in Valais, Geneva, The Swiss Riviera, Bologna (Italy,) Paris and Madrid and elsewhere, to mention just a few. These exhibitions allow time of great self reflection, the possibility to think, breath, exchange and be an artist from different perspectives. The meetings and exchanges  enrich me greatly and oblige me to ask myself many questions,  regarding my work . 

 

Two prizes obtained during the 2016 and 2017 editions of the exhibition "Little Treasures" organised by Trevisan International Art in Bologna, as well as, a cultural merit awarded by the commune of Savièse, have been of enormous encouragement, giving courage and a strong desire to persevere in this magnificent adventure. I have also had the honour of joining the “Arthoteque,” a group of professional Swiss artists. 

 

My work was also the subject of a double page spread in the magazine Art & Design, in the May 2017 issue, as well as an article in the magazine Top Art, in the spring 2018 edition.
