Born in 1978 in Nylstroom, where nature embraces the lovely Waterberg district, I started my journey with art as a young girl. I am blessed to be talented in a broad spectrum of art and thankful to God for my special gift and talents. I understand the process of creativity and innovation and enjoy a wide range of art making from on-scale model building to sculpture and ceramics. I know how to use photography in fine arts in the process of graphics, sketching, lino printing and painting.
In 2000, I completed my Interior design diploma in at Pretoria Technicon. I married and 4 years later, we started a family. In 2008, I started my own business, but as a mother, my children played such an important part in my daily routine that I felt a profound need to teach them all I know. To be the most successful mother I become an art teacher.
I recently completed my Master's degree in Fine and Applied arts and Art theory. I am currently studying Pastoral Narrative Art Therapy at Coram Deo. My studies continually improve my conceptual self-image, developing new ideas and skills along the way. I experience the patience and acceptance of my beloved husband and children continually with every new day.
To visualise my approach to my work, I try to comprehend the question of self-identity, present day existence and family relations as part of connectivity and family history. To be able to commend with more understanding on current social and political statuses in South Africa, I chose to look to my own family history and connectivity.
In my work, I include the omnipresence of God who created all peoples.
