I love to paint on large canvases. A lot of fun though are also the «little gems», light and playful, that are often the smaller siblings of the larger works of art.

Ich liebe es, auf großen Leinwänden zu malen. Viel Freude machen mir aber  auch die «kleinen Schmuckstücke», die leicht und verspielt, oft die kleineren Geschwister der größeren Kunstwerke sind.

J’adore de peindre sur de grandes toiles. Mais beaucoup de plaisir j’ai aussi avec les «petits bijoux», légère et ludique, ils sont souvent les petits frères et sœurs des grandes œuvres d’art.
