Lisa Kressig, Geneva






Lisa Kressig was born in the Emmental in Switzerland. Paralell to Business college she studied voice at the conservatory in Bern and London. In New York, she added modern dance to her artistic expression. Much later she began to paint. She lived in England, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Pakistan and France. She also traveled a lot.

Back in Switzerland, painting became her main artisitic expression. Private lessons and a 3 years instruction in a painting-atelier gave the start to exhibitions in 1985. She goes regularly to master seminaries in Austria, Germany and France. She had teachers like Peter Bernhard (Murnau, Germany), Joseph Winkler (Salzburg, Austria) and lately at the Art Academie Bad Reichenhall, Sigi Braun, well known German abstract painter.

Her modern paintings express visions of the present, enriched by experiences she had with contacts of people over the whole world. The paintings reflect her calm and positive attitude towards nature and life.

She believes that painting is something that has its source in the unconscious, not to show the visible, but the invisible.
