As a South African artist living in Stellenbosch, I have always found my inspiration from the surrounding landscapes as well as the abundant and colourful heritage of this country.
Expressing my deep connection and love for this land through various painting mediums has always been the primary driving force behind my creative energy.
However, as a mother and grandmother, it goes without saying that I have an even stronger connection to my very own familial lineage.

As a South African artist living in Stellenbosch, it’s been a great honour to share a workshop in Florence, Italy with Brazilian watercolourist Marcos Beccari.
Marcos spent time demonstrating his watercolour techniques while using a live model. His demonstrations have really helped me improve my technique. I believe there is always space to learn something new and to expand on what we already know. I am extremely

To top it all off, it’s in the areas in and around Stellenbosch that I get most of my inspiration from – I can truly say that my heart belongs here.
So, I really couldn’t think of a better place for my personal gallery to be situated than in the heart of the Stellenbosch art route.
Another extremely proud moment for me is the opportunity to co-host a workshop in Florence,...

Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch
Having an art gallery in Stellenbosch, I feel extremely

Last week I was invited to speak at a Vinicultural and Oenology event held at the JH Neethling building at Stellenbosch University.
The event was centred around the beauty of wine and South Africa’s vibrant wine industry. It was also aimed at highlighting professionalism in the industry and the opportunities available to up and coming winemakers and students wanting to enter the trade.
Being a wine event, you may wonder why a South African artist was invited to deliver a talk?

I am a South African Artist living in Stellenbosch. My art gallery in Stellenbosch is located in Church Street – a vibrant, culture filled street with many local attractions.
Living in South Africa, I have always been stirred by the local flora and fauna, and I often find myself dreaming of different ideas to paint.
My inspiration comes from all over and I’m very grateful for the beauty that surrounds me.
I believe art should be shared and the stories behind each piece told. Every artist and their artwork have background stories, but not all have the space to express them – I am fortunate...
