Paint your world

Dear art lover,

Let yourself be guided through my world of illustrations. The paintings, immersed in light and colours, tell stories of my fantasy world.

My studio is located at the Gewürzmühle in Zug where most of my works are created.

As a child in growing up in Valais, I spent my free time drawing with coloured pencils and dreamed to be an artist. I trained to be a primary teacher but continued to have an energetic interest in art. I rediscovered painting while performing a role as an “artist” in a theatre play. The paintings created during the play were so well received by the audience that I devoted myself more intensively to painting and art…

Without further ado, I procured an easel and everything necessary, within a very short period of time I had created dozens of works. Shortly afterwards I held my first exhibition in the old town hall in Zug which gave me new courage and confirmation to continue painting.

Then I attended painting courses at the Lucerne School of Art. This was followed by a second exhibition in Zug. I left primary school and attended the Hochschule Lucerne (HSLU) preparatory art course leading me to finally open my own studio.

I now enthusiastically combine my two passions for art and teaching and am happy to share this experience here.

Critics Comments

It's the Genius mixture of her acrylics which to drive home the surrealistic concept on canvas. Denise brings to life all that she paints.

Harry Fuchs

Denise seduces with colors that take you on a journey which opens doors to her world, and invites you to discover it. At the same time you reflect on your own world. You pause, think, enjoy and, after a short moment, let yourself be carried away through to the next detail.

Harry Fuchs, Director Softlanding

My favourite art quotes

I don't listen to what art critics say. I don't know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.

Jean-Michel Basquiat

Edward Hopper

If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
