I was born in 1969 and grew up in Bloemfontein. I studied Architecture and after my studies moved to Cape Town where I started working as Architect in training. I worked in the profession for 10 years. After my children were born I found the demands of the architectural and building industry too much and decided to take up my art again. I have always loved art and have been drawing and painting since I was a child. I mainly work in oils with a palette knife. I love thick impasto work. I live, with my family, in Cape Town, South Africa.
