Artist Statement: 

Born and raised in Switzerland, I embraced an adventure and came to Canada in 1984 to be a nanny for a Swiss family in Banff. The Bow Valley has been my home ever since arriving that December day. Meeting my Swiss husband in Banff, starting a family and also owning and running our own restaurant for 13 years in Canmore was exciting and turbulent.

In 2005 I started working in Home Care at the Canmore Hospital as a full time Secretary and just recently added another challenge in starting my home health therapy business in my spare time offering Reflexology and Lymphatic body work. Creativity has tickled my heart since childhood. Trying to accomplish any project out of nothing. Art always intrigued me. All sorts of Art, but my heart is in painting with Acrylics and I love abstracts.

I really only started to paint in September of 2016, I just jumped in and started with a blank canvas…….and here I am, a new member of the CAG. I am excited to be a part of this great group and cannot wait to get learning and painting.
