  • Biography
    Born in South Africa, but followed my heart to America and am now living and working in Yorkville,IL USA.

    My creativity begins with an appreciation for the beauty in the everyday, often reflecting my emotions and memories  and  interwoven with more idyllic and imagined elements of the environment. 

    Exploring ideas of socialization, personal identity and one’s sense of belonging within a place, I draw inspiration from my experience of living in between countries  and continents. I am  fascinated by the dividing line between fact and fantasy, and the lingering imprint it has on  our lives. 

     Although not obvious, my art is always deeply personal. The presence of birds are often a symbolic overtone with reference to where I find myself. It is a place of self healing and transformation.  

    My oil paintings are intuitive. I seldom have a clear concept of what the end result will look like and often linger on a painting, waiting for it to reveal itself. It is the process that keeps me moving forward.  

     Through the years developed a series of symbols and marks that make up my unique visual vocabulary, but my latest works have developed into  a layered, and more comfortable application. 

    So many artist and tutors have been impressionable upon me along my journey as an artist and my list of painterly influences includes  Odilon Redon, Joseph Stella, Gustav Klimt and Franz Marc to name but a few. 

     I paint from my heart, and it is imperative to me to remain integral  to my own voice. My art reflects my current state of self, with references to symbolism, but it has no singular meaning.  I believe that to assume that,  is as assuming that every person experience the world in the same way.
