Welcome to art-indigo!
Have you ever studied the perfect form of a romanesco cabbage or the exquisite delicacy of a passion flower? Such beauty inspires and speaks to me; I am drawn to these treasures of nature, and feel the desire to paint structures found in all dimensions, from the very large to the infinitely small. Shall I take the crocodile’s back as my inspiration, or the Andes mountain chain? I love this feeling of freedom and unity. I love playing with colours, and marvel anew each time I sense the harmony among them.
I am greatly moved by the vibrant paintings of the Aborigines, a people to whom I feel very near. These paintings inspire me because they express an ancient wisdom, more than 40,000 years old, and reflect an intimate connection with nature.
When I paint I rediscover all that is instinctual in me, a knowledge that comes from far away and which whispers the secrets of life, its origins, my origins. I am fascinated by this story, and I would like to share it with you.
My heartfelt thanks go to Beat Müller for creating this marvellous site and to another friend Béat for the portrait photos. Thank you to everyone who supports and encourages me.
