Painting is my earliest memory of my second year. Now I am seventy-seven and I continue working daily and intensively. After having lived in many places of different countries, in various cultures am I a Swiss resident of the Greek island of Paros where I have worked for many years. By biographic coincidences, the combination of different talents, interests and chances I worked in various projects, in different areas of life. The center is always my creative work as an artist. I develop my awareness, understanding and doing. Usual learning, usual institutes, usual teachers have been always not a fit for me. For all techniques, knowledge and abilities I found in each case the optimal teachers and institutions. I learned most by the pictures of all the great painters before me and by my constant intensive working. Off about 1986 I gave up most of my technical skills, methods, effects and my work became autonomously, relevant, singular. I found always sequences in simultaneous motions, directions (or they discovered myself, of course) to my own transreal work. My topics, my projects, my painting develops permanently.     

My attitude is constant: I do not arrive, I continue. I do not create a rigid brand label. I am responsible for my work, but neither their constructor nor controller, but part of these developing processes. And I work incessantly. Models I do not have. I feel relationships however. Of the width of my interests and upbringings out I am a distant cousin of the Renaissance artists, by the daily intensity of my work and my constant developing rather a relative of the creatoholics of modern art, absolutely, passionate. My position in the art of the present: I do not work according to the rules of the art market. Therefore I create my own area from classical conditions, demands on me and my attentiveness of the present. My work does not fit into the raster of the usual classifications. It is transreal: on the way, not at the end of a frozen style, connecting different realities and inviting to others, abundance. My work points over itself outside, because it is created out of our old, deep dwells and common understandings, inviting to subjective experiencing, from which new common realities develops.
