born 1956 in Aarau (CH), lives and works in Basle (CH)
Since 1982 oilpainting is the mainpart of my work. I started with first trials in a surreal style. Under influence of Morandi and Giacometti I developped a painting, that is obliged to the expression of the individual in its environs. I call it painting of the quiet disqiet. Even if it is possible to identify some contents of the paintings as objects, they all are fictional. They are not an image of a real occasion, but pure picture, that follows its own effect only.
1979 - 1984 Formation as an art teacher at the Art & Craft highschool in Basel. Afterwards working as an independent painter and art teacher. 1989 - 1997 technical assistant with several film productions Since 1992 regular assistance with sculptor Paul Suter. Never read Harry Potter.
