Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1980, I moved to the South-West of Germany at the young age of six. Growing up, I spent summers in a village near Barcelona, Spain, and winters skiing in the mountains. These memories of beautiful landscapes and vivid surroundings have become central themes in my paintings, where warm sentiments are woven into each canvas.

Driven by a relentless pursuit of perfection, I create Artworks with a print-like aesthetic and heightened vibrancy. The meticulous process involves constructing high-quality canvases and applying multiple layers of paint, infusing each artwork with a brilliance that is uniquely mine. In my creative process, shapes and colors arise more spontaneously, not pre-planned. My fascination with the profound impact of colors and light on emotions guides my hand, resulting in a palette that is a celebration of happiness and an authentic expression of my inner world. Contrasts and non-reality subjects, such as  droplets despising the warmth of the burning sun, add a surreal dimension to my artistic DNA. My paintings don’t depict reality, but show a universe that springs from my imagination serving as vessels for emotions – a personal mission to bring joy to others through my art. 

Creativity has been a constant companion throughout my life, from drawing portraits as a child to crafting abstract landscapes as a teenager. My academic journey led me graduating at the University of Applied Sciences in Trier as a Fashion Designer and later into a career in the fashion industry as a leading designer, where I honed my skills and artistic sensibility. Reflecting on my journey, including my time in fashion, has refined my artistic style. 

The Covid-19 pandemic gave me the opportunity to focus more on my passion, ultimately leading me to find my true identity as a professional painter in September 2020. Since then, my art has garnered recognition worldwide, adorning the walls of private collections, public buildings, and offices in various countries, including Germany, Cyprus, Sweden, Spain, Ireland, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Portugal, UK, Switzerland, Canada, USA, Australia, China, Japan, and UAE.

My life as an artist is centered around my small studio in Bielefeld.
