I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, in 1985, was self-employed as a freelance artist, working on consignments and exhibitions. After immigrating to Australia in 2002, I completed a Teaching Diploma at Edith Cowan University and commenced teaching. In the fourteen years that followed, I taught art while maintaining my own art practice. In 2014, I volunteered to teach art to refugees for the Red Cross, which lead to a successful exhibition at Central TAFE. In 2017, I became the Head Teacher in the Arts at Parkerville Christian College, where I teach fine art to senior students. In 2018, I completed a Master of Art and Design degree at Curtin University. During this period, I continued practising art privately and exhibited at various galleries and competitions in Perth in my works. I love to inspire anyone who wants to learn how to do art and share my own stories in my art.
