INSPIRATION

I studied at Watford College of Art during the 80's . and was honoured to be taught by

           :Peter Shmidt ,

            Michael Werner,

            Paul peter Peich

these mentors brought visiting tutors:

Abram Games,

Hans jorg Mayer

and Brian Eno.

After my Diploma I travelled to South Africa for six months where I created a portfolio of political work.

I studied Art Therapy at Goldsmiths in my mid 20's and used my qualifications as a practicing Therapist in Day Centres in Hertfordshire and London.

I sell my works internationally on Saatchi Art online.

My life has been interrupted by Dialysis twice, I am on my second Kidney Transplant and am enjoying freedom once again to paint and have a life with my family.

Born in South Africa in 1958  my family moved to the UK in 1964. Red Earth relates to the smells and vitality of Africa, Africa never leaves ones soul it is embedded in ones life through Art and Music. A collection of paintings reflect life in South Africa during the Apartheid years and the present. My travels to Israel and Europe reflect the elements of Red Earth where the importance of light and colour represent life. I am interested in the human form and incorporating life figures within a story. I  exhibit works online( Saatchi Art) and at pop up galleries.
