I was born in KwazuluNatal on the 16th January 1963. I matriculated from Pietermaritzburg Girls' High in 1980, and attended the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, to study art and teaching. I graduated in 1985 with a BA Fine Art degree and a Higher Diploma in Education.
I taught matric art in several government schools, before settling down to teach in an independent (IEB) school known as Grantleigh College, for 16 years. In 2013 I made the decision to become a full-time artist and now paint for 7 hours a day.
I have exhibited with Grace Kotze in her Loading Bay Gallery in Durban and I have taken part in the KZNSA members' exhibition. I entered the 2017 Sanlam Portrait Competition and achieved a place in the top 100.
Solo show at the Rust en Vrede Gallery in September 2018.
