Beatrice Bourhis was born in Constance, of German and French descent. Being exposed to the interesting, beautiful and uplifting architecture and mosaic work by Antonio Gaudi sparked her enthusiasm for her creative path.
Through experimenting and searching for new ways of combining a variety of materials, she has found a way to express the beauty of her surroundings and life itself. Combining the mosaic structure with the clear lines of such materials as glass, metal and Perspex gave her more options to create.
Yet she searched for better ways to express moods, impressions, thoughts and environmental subjects. Now, her abstract painting style is an integral aspect of her work. Colour, line and visual texture are used to express her emotional and cognitive responses to her environment and aspects of her life.
