I have always enjoyed the feel and smell of paints and pastels.
I had my first art studio when I was just six years old – a
Wendy house in our garden where I grew up in George.
I studied Art Teaching at the University of Stellenbosch
and taught art at a primary school for three years.
After that I traveled overseas for several years before
returning to the Cape in 2000 and starting to paint in earnest.
