I was born and raised in Zürich, Switzerland.
As a teenager, traveling with my parents to Paris, London, Florence and New York, I got interested in modern art. Despite this fascination for art and culture I decided to go to medical school at the University of Zürich from which I graduated in 1990.
During my formation in Anaesthesiology I started working on first sculptures and collage pictures.
The link between medicine and art is still part of my life; it gives me deep satisfaction and informs my art.
