My appreciation and fascination for the arts goes back to my childhood.
Born in Montreal of Austrian parents, I was surrounded by a world of music, painting, creative design and photography. As a child, I had the fortune of growing up near a mountain wildlife sanctuary, and experiencing nature, its ever-changing moods and vibrant colours of the four seasons. This strong admiration for nature compels me to photograph dynamic panoramic landscapes.
As a graduate of the certificate photography program from both the Vancouver School Board for Continuing & International Education and Focal Point, an internationally acclaimed visual arts institution in Vancouver, I have developed my photographic talent and defined my unique style. Photography has become a passion in my life. It is an extension of “who I am”.
Through my extensive university studies in Canada, U.S.A. and Europe, I am blending music and language arts with visual arts in my “Children’s Piano-Arts Corner” studio. This unique combination provides for an enriching all-rounded curriculum. My multi-faceted skills and experience as a published author, artistic performer and educator enable me to express “Imagery In Music” and create dynamic audio-visual presentations.
Imaginative design, an eye for nature’s beauty and a flair for originality characterize my emotional imagery. My Tofino & Okanagan vistas, “Scenes from the Enchanted Forest” including nature’s circle of life and “Reflections In Glass” depicting the magic of architecture have received professional recognition and acclamation of excellence.

The Audio Visual Experience – Creative Storytelling
The blending of two magical languages together, MUSIC & PHOTOGRAPHY, has a double expressive power to communicate meaning beyond words. This creative connection appeals to the senses, stimulates feelings, emotions and reaction in an audience. I enjoy conveying strong messages through “listening pictures” to reflect the mood of the music and create a special effect or an impression. A flair for originality, creative design and bold artistic expression define my storytelling on a diverse variety of subject matter. I combine my photographic artwork and my live studio piano performances to express creative visualization that applies creative energy and imagination to the music making process. Photography has enabled me to see and feel music in an empowering, deeper and richer way. See what I see, hear what I hear, feel what I feel.
