Born in Vietnam in 1971 and quickly airflown to Switzerland, Annick grew up in Geneva. She decided in her early age that Art would be an important part in her life. Following first an artistic education in high school (Swiss Maturity, Visual Arts, CH) and Superior Art and Design School (HEAD Geneva, CH), Annick then started a career as a therapist (MSc.Psych., UNIGE, CH), BodyTalk Therapist CBP, SG/AU/UK/US).
After an enriching expatriation in Singapore, Annick came back to Switzerland with two adorable kids and a huge desire to reconnect with Art.
Although figurative and realistic drawings have always been her comfort zone, Annick constantly enjoys taking new challenges by experimenting new techniques and styles. Now she exhibits and sells her artworks as a fulltime artist.
Annick can be found also under her pseudonym Gookeemonster. "Gookeemonster" comes from a combination of her usually mispronunced last name Gœke, [g ʊ k ɪ ] instead of [g ø: k ə], with the famous funny-fluffy blue CookieMonster! ;-)
Enjoy my artworks, comments are welcome!
I am not a "screen" person, so please be patient, I'll try my best to be more online! :-)
