Sharing my passion with you

About Me

Welcome to my artist page. Here I would like to share my art as I learn, experiment and develop it. After obtaining my BA (Fine Arts) Information Design degree, I worked as a graphic designer for a few years.

I then took a break exploring other businesses and travelling extensively, but always had this gnawing urge to express myself through my art. So I soon returned to art, but exploring it through fine art and different mediums. I am inspired and fascinated by the human spirit and the balance between beauty and ugliness in everything I encounter in my everyday life, love and travels.

Through my pain and explorations I encounter growth and miracles which leaves me speechless and in awe. Even though life can be fragile and fleeting, still I’d like to stand still for a moment and reflect on those things that make this journey worth while, and hopefully inspire you too.

Sometimes I feel that I can never be enough; other times that I am way too much. The truth is, I am more than I ever imagined I could be.

As long as I can remember I have been in love with all things arty, head in the clouds and pencil in hand.⛅🧚🏻‍♀️⁠
.⁠
I grew up in a small town where we didn't have art in school, but that didn't stop me from expressing myself. After matric, I was enrolled to study law - as one does.... (just imagine 🤦🏻‍♀️), but luckily changed my mind against all advice, and went on to study Art (graphic design) at the University of Pretoria.⁠
.⁠
Fast forward a few years after graduation, and I was quite disillusioned with the whole design thing, and realised it wasn't for me. I went on to travel the world, come back and started a new career path in Land development and construction. I truly enjoyed it and it quite agreed with me, until it didn't. ⁠
.⁠
After 25 years in business, I was longing to get back to my art, and started to occasionally pick up a paintbrush or piece of charcoal to still the little voice inside. It wasn't long until I realised that I can not do both things halfway, I have to choose. ⁠
.⁠
Well, 2 years ago art won, and I was thrilled to embark on my new life with this art adventure, and what an adventure it has been so far!⁠
.⁠
After being in the harsh construction industry for 25 years, this was a welcome change for me, and I am a happy soul now! I am so blessed and have met incredible people along the way who inspire and support me.⁠
.⁠
Thank you for everyone who played a part in this transition in my life. ⁠
