Sketching, doodling and copying cartoon characters have been part of my life since primary school. Singing and dancing, i.e. the passion for musical theater followed in high school together with the knowledge that a non-artistic education would bring me financial stability. Therefore, I chose an international career in the hospitality industry after having obtained a bachelor in hospitality management from the Glion Institute.
Once I was back in Zurich, Switzerland, my passion for the arts led to an industry change and a masters in arts administration from the University of Zurich. A career at the opera house Zurich followed, where I learnt that the people back stage are as important as the ones on stage. In my rare spare time, I kept developing my acrylic painting and drawing skills.
I was subsequently a freelancer, supporting individuals or groups in the performing arts with their project and production management, organisational, and process development. The joy to work impactful with people and the desire to spend more time as a producing artist, brought me finally to Vancouver in 2014 where I got certified and accredited as coach and neuro-linguistic programming practitioner from Erickson International College and the International Coaching Federation.
Being a professional coach enables me to combine all my experience and skills in service of individuals and teams, while at the same time actively draw and make art prints. I have joined the Malaspina Printmakers studio and organization as a board member and artist on Granville Island.
My abstract ‘Doodle Art’ ink pen drawings and oil monotype prints are all inspired by people, nature and values; aiming to trigger a smile and the viewer’ imagination.
All my pieces are inspired by people, nature and values.
Recently I have started print making, and I have absolutely fallen for oil monotype prints including a technique called Chine Collée 🙂 I am honored to work at the studio of malaspina printmakers on Granville Island in Vancouver.

You are becoming aware of your patterns, way of working, motivations and beliefs. Also, you will learn how to work with emotions productively, rather than be run by them. You become and stay productive on all levels (physical, emotional, intellectual) in any given situation.
Fact is that people in transition are at risk being not their most productive self. A transition might be a change of career, setting up a business, taking on a new role etc. With it comes uncertainty and fears. Fear in a person can result in the most unproductive behavior for the business and themselves.
I support people in a transition, not because I think they cannot make it themselves. I work with them, because I believe they will make it through faster, more successful and even have some fun. Humans operating at maximum productivity live in a state of personal confidence, contentment and motivation.
Combined with the structural element of a solid administration it is a major key to business success. It ensures operational efficiency, which leaves time to focus on business development.
