Growing up in South Africa with a mother who was a landscape painter; drawing and painting became a blissful and ‘easy’ activity for me. My mother worked during the day so she usually painted in the early hours of the morning. I would sit silently on the stairs watching her every brush stroke.
I did not see myself an artist for many of my adult years. I was a fashion model, social worker, photographer, scriptwriter, and broker of old master and impressionist art, and still, I questioned my path.
Moving to Santa Fe changed all that. This enchanting place has given me the gift of living in the world of oils and art that I have always known, so grateful to wake-up every day and open my energy to the creative process.
