I have a unique view on the world and attitude to life… I was born with a bang – quite literally – in a hospital under Mortar attack in the Rhodesian bush war. My mom gave birth without drugs, but with an automatic weapon by her side. In all fairness, the doctor was armed with a Baretta shoved into his scrubs, and my father was in full military gear, with hand-grenades strapped across his chest… So I had an unorthodox attitude to life from the start.
We moved to South Africa in the early 1980’s – at the height of the Apartheid era – and survived through to the transition to Democracy in 1994…
I was blessed with parents who taught me the difference between right and wrong, and strove for a more Utopean model of the world we live in today.
Not always a practical belief system, as I am still shocked by the depths people will stoop to to get their own way, but a pleasant ideal to strive for… Treating others as we would like to be treated, standing up for those who cannot help themselves, Making the World a better place…
I celebrated the turn of the Millenium by marrying my husband, and having my daughter – who is one of the most wonderful things in my life, followed closely by my son, who was born in 2008 – just before we moved to Australia.
We plan to make a home for ourselves here, and build a better future for our children, but like all good things has come at a cost… We had to leave all our family and friends behind…
As an artist, I am fascinated by the Human Condition, the drama of Light, and Aesthetically pleasing forms.
My work ranges from mature to quirky – oil paintings, drawings and prints…
I will be starting afresh, and uploading my “Australian” work as I complete each piece…
I hope you enjoy it, please buy?! And feel free to comment!

Downside of Fame/Success

I was thinking about fame and fortune, and being really good and admired for something that you’re passionate about… And I thought about what had happened to Stefanie Meyer with her “Midnight Sun” being leaked – WHAT an artistic and personal betrayal?! A rape of the soul. And also about Robert Pattinson and how he’s probably starting to fantisize about alien ab…
