(b. 1967) I hail from the beautiful city of Cape Town, which has been home throughout my life. While painting has always been a cherished pastime, my academic path led me towards the study of graphic design following my school days. However, life had other plans in store, and I changed course to become an accountant. In recent years, my passion for painting has grown immensely, to the point where it has become an all-encompassing pursuit. To devote more time to my passion, I made a decision to reduce my commitments at the NGO where I've been employed.
