I have been painting for more years than I care to remember. I've been around for a while (smile). I have exhibited extensively in this time, I've had solo shows and group exhibitions in major cities in South Africa, USA and the UK.
I have collectors all over the world.
I'm currently living in a seaside town in Cape Town, South Africa.
In 2020 I facilitated a healing art retreat in Bali, with my husband and colleague. But the two scheduled weeks, landed up being five months. We couldn't get home, locked down, but needless to say, we were happily stuck in Bali. During that time I created almost obsessively. But without my normal art materials I played with what was available and that is when I fell in love with illustrating. I used water mediums, pens, pencils, crayons, collage. I discovered Posca pens and a little later Procreate. Heaven!
My colour palette is strong and vibrant. Whimsy and fantasy sprinkles my art- with a free, loose, lyrical and spontaneous techniques. My style is fun and quirky.
Whether I'm painting, illustrating, mosaicking, decorating houses, painting fabrics, ceramics, collaging, working with mixed media, making and designing bags, travelling, teaching or demonstrating, art and colour keeps me sane.
My subject matter ranges from 'portraits', people, landscapes, buildings , flowers, still life and abstracts.
I transform information or reference from real life into into my own personal visual creations .
Thank you for stopping by to view my art .
