This Johannesburg based artist started out as a pharmacist. After completing her Honours Degree in Psychology she joined Helios to further her skills in Art Therapy. During this time she fell in love with art, the process and the emotional power it yields.
While raising her family consisting of three young children, she took part time classes with Rika de Klerk and Willie Jacobs. She also attended workshops of Koos Bronkhorst, Niel Moss, Willie Jacobs, Rentia Coetzee, Ruth Walters, Elize Bezuidenhout, Charla Maarschalk and Jennifer McChristian.
