Born in Johannesburg in 1950 and educated in Pretoria. Relocated to Cape Town in 1975 and live in the suburb of Blouberg, where I am constantly amazed by the colour and beauty of my surroundings. At the end of 2005, I took early-retirement from a long, successful but all consuming career in the Human Resources field. This new found freedom allowed me to pursue my artistic dreams. My preferred medium is oils. Mainly painting from life or my own photographs. I have trained under the tutelage of Leonie E Brown, Ina Wilken and Laura Wenman. I am a sensitive artist and hope you see that in my work and experience some of the joy I have creating a painting.
