Swiss clown Gardi Hutter interview in Schweizer Garten, April

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!

Interview & Portrait in Schweizer Garten February issue: Tropenhaus Basel



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.


My first portrait in „Schweizer Garten“

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!
