The Story Behind My Work

We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are. ~Anais Nin

As a biologist, I have an ardent interest in nature. Evolution is one of the most wonderful forces of nature; as modern science shows, we are all genetically connected, and the distinction between what defines humans and animals has become fuzzy. Thus, each human and each animal is to be regarded as an individuals, and all deserve the same respect that we (should) give any fellow human. Animals have strong survival instincts in the harshest of landscapes, showing tremendous resilience as individuals, but also as team players. Although most of these paintings depict animals, these creatures have been humanized, emphasizing their unique characters and sometimes adding some humor.

What Some of the Buyers Say

Our initial painting by Clemens P. Suter (one of the RAVENS) was recently complemented with a PUFFIN. Although both paintings are different in object, they hang on our living room wall very harmoniously; united through style and technique. We enjoy them every day.

I managed to ‘catch’ RED FISH #7 from Clemens. The fish is now swimming on the wall of my study, and clearly visible during my video conferences. I get a lot of compliments because of it. It has a wonderful structure. Clemens took care of all the shipping to the UK, which went very smoothly.

My Technique

Each painting is original work, created with the best materials. Structure and depth (not fully appreciable in the photographs) is created through multiple layers of acrylic paint and ochre collected in the French Provence. In some paintings, other materials are added, such as carbon, metal, sand, gypsum or paper. Motives (the foreground, in most cases animals) are all created with oil colors and (in many cases) with gold leaf.

Paintings that have found new owners are marked as such, all other paintings are available for purchase – profits are donated to charity. Drop me an email here if you are interested in a painting – no obligation on your side, I love to hear from you, and can provide more details or photos. These paintings make great personal gifts for your relatives and friends. I ship worldwide, and will take care of all shipping and customs details.
