My creative process is the expression of an inner experience in relation to an outer one. Subtle energetic sensations taking place in my body are interpreted into abstracted shapes and color, to evoke a sense of emotion. Living in Europe for many years, I studied the European schools of abstraction informally and exhibited ceramic wares and paintings. I returned to South Africa in 2016. Graduating with a Graphic Design qualification from the Vaal University of Applied Technologies in 1987, I worked as an illustrator before pursuing painting. My awards include Graphic Design Student of the Year (1987) and a finalist in the Sasol New Signatures Competition (2017). I have participated in a number of group exhibitions locally and abroad – the latest being Drawn In, RK Contemporary, Riebeek Kasteel in 2020. Of my three solo exhibitions, the most recent was at Mok Gallery, Stellenbosch in 2019. My work can be found in national and international private collections.
