“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist” Réne- Francois Magritte.
The human narrative holds mystery for me and is at the centre of my work. I am also intrigued by the female body in contemporary South Africa. Currently I am painting and making sculpture although photography has led me to into the media of video and performance art. A post graduate degree in Drama was followed by a Masters in Fine Arts at Durban University of Technology and I taught in the Drama and Performance Studies Department (UKZN) for several years. Art making feeds my soul: it is a place of solitude yet it provides me with an engagement of both my internal and external life.

I take on commission based art work, for corporate and private collectors.
The Artist’s Way
I am the facilitator of Julia Cameron’s extraordinary book that aims to free people to let themselves be creative. It is a twelve week course: it has taught artists and non-artists to live more creatively through practising an art; or simply to practice the art of creative living. My background as a professional speaker, trainer, lecturer and teacher helps me to motivate people to get excited about rediscovering their talents. I have qualifications in drama, art, theology and Lifeline training which have ignited my interest in coaching people to live purposely and revitalise their creative potential.
