My interview with Gardi Hutter is out now – in the current, April, issue of Schweizer Garten. Here you can see all the paintings and pictures taken/painted in her „Klostergarten“ (walled or monastry garden) – as well as the finished portrait of Gardi. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed meeting her!
Gardi’s tortoises are surprisingly speedy when you want to paint them!

Tessin at night
I had a very pleasant, warm and somewhat damp morning in Basel’s tropical rain forest – run by Bruno Erny for Basel University. This enormous greenhouse is going to be pulled down this year as it is a typical 1960s construction and no longer works as well as it should – as the resident basilisk found out to his cost one night. The plants are also looking forward to the new building, which will however take a while before completion.
Four of my paintings on a garden /natural theme will be exhibited in the Swiss Art Space in Lausanne from 19th February – 3rd March!
More details to follow.
Yipee, the first article in my 2018 monthly column, „Gartenstil“ in the Swiss gardening magazine „Schweizer Garten“ is now in the newsagents! I have painted a portrait for the magazine every month next year and interviewed some fascinating people. A subscription to Switzerland’s only independent gardening magazine is definitely a good idea!
How about gifting original art this Christmas? I also have gift vouchers, wish lists…
Had a lovely time at the Kulturnacht in Liestal last week… can you hear the music?
