I am a Swiss-born, Sydney based painter and am currently undertaking my Master of Fine Arts Degree at National Art School in Darlinghurst. My work is about my own observations, personal experience and feelings about being in this world as a woman. I am interested in the preexisting assumptions and expectations of female representation and gender stereotypes placed on us by both society & myself. How are we supposed to behave, look or talk? I am fascinated by the constant need to be able to categorise everything and what happens if we can’t. I gather my source material of predominately women from various contexts – family albums, snapshots from my phone, media, advertising, TV or films and turn them in to painting in an attempt to visualise certain states of minds, feelings, thoughts.
