I was born in 1962 in the east of Switzerland. In my early years, I went to the basic school of Art in St.Gallen Switzerland. A few years later I finished the florist apprenticeship and shortly after the gardener apprenticeship. Until now I have worked as a florist and as an instructor in a drum corps. I am married and have two children.
I like plants from my own garden and not so much exotic plants. I’m well versed in pencil, colored pencil and aquarell painting, but my preferred technique is colored pencil.
In 2010 I started with botanical art. Four years later I received my Diploma from the Botanical Illustration School in St.Gallen Switzerland. In the same year I became Associate Member at SBA. In 2015 I got full Membership with the SBA.
