    Immersed in a lifelong love affair with art, I embarked on my artistic journey by studying at the Port Elizabeth Technicon (now NMMMU) in 1986. Nature, particularly the serene company of birds, has always been an integral part of my upbringing, fostering a profound connection to tranquil spaces where our souls find resonance.


    As a wife and mother to two inspiring daughters, my artistic inspiration is deeply rooted in the beauty of family life. The theme of birds in my recent work emerged during a pivotal period when I sought solace and tranquility. It was to the avian world that my heart turned, finding respite in bird photography, whether by the seaside or amidst inland landscapes. Birds, with their constant presence, serve as a welcome distraction from the hustle of city life, offering a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday existence.


    In the quietude of my creative process, I rarely accompany my painting sessions with music; instead, I find solace in the harmonious symphony of birdsong enveloping our home. My artworks have found homes in collections across the globe, from Dubai and Mallorca to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, Scotland, and various galleries in Cape Town.


    Preferring the tranquility of online platforms and private appointments, I navigate the art world as a bit of an introvert. My sincere aspiration is for my art to extend the same sense of peace and joy that I experience during the creative process into the homes of those who appreciate it. While my pieces exude a quiet aesthetic, a careful observer may discern the soft chirping of my feathered muses and the subtle fluttering of wings.
