About Me

I’m a contemporary artist born in Switzerland, raised in Vernon, BC and currently based in Vancouver. I’ve  participated in international exhibitions and residencies for the past 20 years, in Mexico, Finland, Argentina, Abu Dhabi, Spain, France, Canada and the USA. In my work, I explore complex systems of information exchange. Issues of access and denial, of privilege, class and where the power lies are central to my work.

I have a Master’s Degree in Studio Arts from the University of British Columbia and am skilled in painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, installation, video and new media with a strong background in art theory and history. I’m especially interested in creating site-specific interventions into public space.
