At the age of 19 I started painting while studying music.I had a few private art lessons and since then I have always picked up a brush to paint. It has been 10

When I married my Swiss husband, I left South Africa and moved to Switzerland. Since then I am a mom to three kids and mainly paint at night,during nap times,
inside ,outside. I make a plan to get to my paints and canvases! I work with acrylic paint on canvas and love experimenting with mixed media ,from fabric pieces to ordinary wall paints. I usually
focus on an object or part of a person that catches my eye. Then I play with colors , textures and patterns as backgrounds. I usually keep my people faceless so that the viewer can identify more
personally with the painting.
