''I began my photography studies while living in Switzerland at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich.  I left Switzerland and returned to the United States, where, with hard work and perseverance, I managed to open my photography studio in San Francisco. For the next 15 years, I worked as a fine art and advertising photographer, shooting campaigns for clients such as Sony, AT&T, Visa, Calvin Klein, and Marriott Hotels. My work was inspired the Dove Campaign  'Real Women, Real Beauty', which was shown in the United States and all over the world. In the early 2000s, I traveled around the towns of Costa Brava in Spain. Inspired by the spectacle of color and light that opened before my eyes, I began to experiment, giving my photography in an entirely new direction. This experimentation evolved into my current, ongoing project: the Dreamscapes Series. I have also turned to capturing the beauty of the human form, inspired by Impressionist. As I have been a visual artist for 25 years, I have always liked to work to break stereotypes. Since 2011, I have been working on photography in motion.''

''J'ai commencé mes études en photographie lorsque je vivais en Suisse, à l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Zurich. J'ai quitté la Suisse pour retourner en Amérique, où après acharnement et dur labeur, j'ai ouvert mon studio photographique à San Francisco. Durant les 15 années suivantes, j'ai travaillé comme photographe des Beaux-Arts et de publicité notamment pour Sony, AT&T, Visa, Calvin Klein, Marriott Hotels parmi tant d'autres. Mon travail a inspiré la campagne de Dove sur la "Femme Vraie - Beauté Vraie", qui fut montrée aux Etats-Unis et dans le monde entier. Au début des années 2000, j'ai voyagé le long des villes côtières de la Costa Brava en Espagne. Inspirée par le jeu des couleurs et de la lumière, je commençais à expérimenter, utiliser la photographie vers une toute nouvelle direction. Cette expérience évolua vers ce que je fais aujourd'hui de façon continue, la Série des Paysages fantasmés. Je suis passée aussi à la photographie représentant la beauté de la forme humaine, inspirée des Impressionnistes. Etant une artiste du visuel depuis 25 ans j'ai toujours voulu casser les stéréotypes. Depuis 2011 je travaille sur la photo en motion.''
