I was born in South Africa in 1964. I have always been an artist. I started painting and selling my work while in High School and made my way as a professional artist doing outdoor shows and private exhibits in South Africa. I moved to America in 1994 and carried on as a professional artist, doing many shows in galleries, private homes, outdoor shows, commission work and teaching for 5 years. I recently started my art career again after taking a break to have my second child in 2004 for a few years.
