Ann Street, New York City, New Y...
My story started 17 years ago when I left my job as a fashion trend forecaster at Foschini and fell pregnant with my eldest daughter, Jemma.
I had done ceramic art most my life but only ever discovered drawing when I studied Fashion Design after school.
Now, jobless and with all my days free, it was suggested that I try my hand at oil painting classes. I joined Helene Train’s studio in Camps Bay & was taught by her for many years, inspiring my love of art & oils.
With the odd sale here and there, most my canvas painting were stacking up against my garage walls, adorning my home & my families homes.
Under the guidance of Paul Birchall, I have continued to learn more & more. As my 3 daughters are now older and in school most of the day, I have set up a studio space and paint at home now too, while listening to 80’s ballads… this is my therapy.
Not sure why or how but I started a FaceBook page to show my hobby (art) & I have been overwhelmed by the responses and the sales as well… What a bonus!
I love what I do!
