Born in Switzerland in 1952, Fredi Gertsch was a competitive swimmer, sports teacher, computer engineer and the father of three boys. Unlike his kids, his sketches, goodnight stories and daydreams of the past have never grown up. Today, Gertsch trains his imagination in the studio, inventing new stories on canvas daily. He has no limits, but the common thread in his work is always the cow. His first Major Exhibition as a freelance Artist was in Hamburg, Germany. In the many exhibitions since, numerous cows, calves and bulls of the Swiss Emmental valley, where Fredi Gertsch has been living over 35 years, are finding their way into the modern apartments of city dwellers, countryside homes in Europe, even the occasional Swiss Chalet ; never running out of cool new places to graze.
