Color and shape have always been an essential part of my life, the best way for me to express my innermost and deepest feelings. My first medium of expression was drawing and painting, but I soon discovered that volume is an essential part of my working process. Color, however, remains important. That is why I often paint my sculptures, whether they be in wood, plaster or acrylic resin.
I was born in Switzerland and graduated from the Geneva school of art in 1969 and have been an artist of some kind ever since. My travel around the world took me to India and Nepal where I developped an interest in Tibetan Buddhism, and this has influenced some of my work. After 9 years spent in the USA, I now live in France, close to the Swiss city of Geneva where I was born.
