In breakneck speed colours and structures change and provide the underground
for the grotesque figures in clear black contours. Often inspired by theatre plays she
invents a unique world of creatures whose monologues continue in the head of the viewer.
Born 1963 in Basel (Switzerland) the artist is trained as screenprinter and studies acting at Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria).
After her contribution in various theatre productions she focusses on painting since 1992, her works were shown in various solo and group exhibitions.
For theatre productions she creates sketches for programmes.
