I was born in 1972 in Switzerland.
At about 15 years old I began painting on several supports like T-shirts and
leather jackets with the airbrush and paint-brushes. When I was 20 years old I began collecting pinup calendars
and gatefolds of WWII artists such as Varga,
Petty and Elvgren. I also became mad on WWII aircrafts and from then this
virus is boiling in my veins. Short after I was given a B17 part on which I painted a reproduction of famous
"Memphis Belle" (shown in the PinUp Section).
This experience drove me to search by myself parts
of WWII aircrafts. I knew that during WWII many aircrafts had landed or crashed
in Switzerland. Thanks to long researches and many "ballads" in the Swiss Alps I
finally found 2 B17s crash sites on which there were still big scraps of wrecks
(after more than 50 years !). At this epoch I also succeeded and received
my PPL (Private pilot license).
With my Art I try to give
these pieces of history a
"second life", as hobby and passion.
My regular job
is in fact far away from my passion, because I am a pharmacist !
