I have always created art, always drawn or painted or made things. I took art lessons from an early age and was a keen artist bubbling with ideas for designing things and observing the world. I studied Fine Arts at university and spent my first approx 10 working years at Sotheby’s, in Johannesburg South Africa, and London UK, enjoying close access to wonderful works of art, objects, furniture etc. I am fascinated by design and to this end I have, at various times, been involved in fabric design, product design, theatrical set design and just over a year ago I completed a continuing studies course in Industrial design at Emily Carr University. In short, my thoughts and inspirations are expressed in everything I do, painting included.
