Biography

Born in Lausanne, Switzerland. She pursued extended studies in human sciences interrupted by a 1980 stay at the Istituto per l’arte e il retauro in Florence followed in 1983 by another stay at the Art Students’ League in New York. She attended in the studio of Richard Poussette Dart, then the youngest exponent of abstract expressionism, which was to prove crucial to her artistic development. Then she entered professional life, split between painting and an independent profession. For a decade, she alternated between her two callings, managing to carry on a singular existence marked her determined effort to protect her creative life.
In 1985, she opened her first studio, providing her with suitable facilities that enabled her to produce large-format works. In 1987, her first personal exhibition propelled her in a direction which she was henceforth to follow. In 1993, she gave up the security of her professional activities to focus exclusively on artistic creation with all its attendant demands.

She has lived in the country since 2007, with her studio and living area under one roof.
