    Brighten your Corner...

    Artist statement

     

     

    I am a self-taught artist who has been painting and drawing for over 30 years. I have worked mostly with pastels, acrylics and collage over the last ten years. My work tends to focus on landscapes and cityscapes from around the world. Through my paintings, I try to convey my feelings for places I love.

    Experimenting with colours is a way of expressing emotions that often can’t be put into words. After spending a month in Ghana, drumming every day with amazing teachers, I wanted to express this overwhelming experience but could not even attempt a figurative representation. Using offcuts of Ghanaian fabrics and blending them into acrylic patterns was the perfect way to depict the vivid brightness of the world I had just experienced. I used origami paper and collage, mixed with pastels, to capture the busy Tokyo cityscapes. Painting mountains has been a link to my childhood and my family in Switzerland, reminding me of the amazing views I had as a child, with mountains almost in my backyard. Painting often takes me to unexpected places, and I just try to follow the ever changing direction of my work.

    “Brighten your corner” is the motto on one of the pieces of African fabric I have used. I like to apply this to my art, as art truly is a way to brighten life. For me, it brightens all corners of my life (and our house…), as well as taking me into a meditative journey, where nothing else matters. When I paint, I feel happy.

     

     

     

    About me...

     

    I was born in Switzerland and studied to be a piano teacher at the Conservatorium of Fribourg. I came to Australia after meeting my future Australian husband in Ireland. Whilst living in Sydney for many years and teaching piano, I experimented with various art forms, such as watercolour, collage, illustration of children's books and silk painting. I have always been strongly attracted to all visual art forms and took up pastels after moving to Tasmania in 2005. Since then, I have consistently worked with a variety of media, initially hoping to express the vibrant and dramatic colours of the Tasmanian landscape, and then of other countries which I have visited or lived in. Mountains are amongst my favourite subjects, as well as water and clouds.

    I had my work exhibited at the Peppercorn Gallery (Richmond) and at the Signal Station Brasserie (Hobart). I am constantly seeking new ways to experiment with art, doing workshops such as print making and mixed media. I love the process of drawing, painting and experimenting, enjoying this process as much as the result.
