Born and grown up in Finland.
With my gymnasium diploma in my pocket and further studies in linguistics in Zurich, I worked in the export business.
Married, with two grown-up children, I live and work in Bronschhofen.
Since my debut studies in water colour in 1990 I have attended numerous painting courses within Switzerland and abroad.
I have experimented with different materials and techniques.
I use acrylics, pigment, sand, collages, and mixed media in my abstract paintings.
