I am a self-taught artist who is deeply passionate about what I create ~ I have always felt great love in expressing the world within and all around me; the flow between our inner selves and
that of the timeless, archetypal world which will always exists without.
I love painting all things imaginative, symbolic, and inspired by
our connection to Nature, one another and the Universe in a visionary
way, incorporating mythical, archetypal, folk and fantasy elements
grounded in a feminine perspective.
Born into a
multi-national family in South Africa, I have always
been sensitive to the expressive beauty and diversity of different cultures, and my unique perspective on art has coloured my intuitive artistic vision. Ever since holding my first crayon at age two I have been
fascinated by art; possessed by the need to draw, paint, print, sculpt
or sew what my imagination conjured up.
Combining my interest in the science and
poetry of the human psyche, I obtained a degree in Psychology and
English Literature whilst beginning my career as a self employed artist in my native city of Johannesburg, South Africa. I spent a number of years travelling, exhibiting and living in England, Scotland and Australia where I co-owned Redwhisper Studio. I now live in the beautiful Mississippi Valley, Iowa, USA with my husband and a host of birds, deer, squirrels, trees and other natural elements which inspire me to create my original hand made items and artwork which are for sale in America and internationally. You can read more about my artwork, inspirations and processes on my Blog.
