Where painting meets Digital Art - my Digital Art.
I was born in South Africa, and after early careers in the medical and fashion industries which took me to Long Island, New York, I settled in Holland with my family, my dog and my cat. In Holland, I took to painting as a way to ground myself and feel more fulfilled. This - 1993 - was the start of my creative destiny, and I have been painting on canvas since that time. While inexperienced, I gradually started participating in local art shows and later I started giving art lessons in my home studio. This was the highlight of my artistic life and it continued for 10 years until challenging health issues intervened.
I continued to work in my studio, and took Sebastian Michaels’ PhotoArtistry course in 2014. Wow! I discovered new and exciting ways to express myself artistically and combine elements of my original paintings with my photos; and have amazing and endless possibilities for personal fulfilment.
I work daily in my home studio, where I create paintings and mixed media works, and combine these to make Digital Art. My life experiences have been significant in shaping the artistic choices I make for topics, colors, forms and materials.
I am now, proudly, a contributing artist for Sebastian Michael's’ PhotoArtistry and Awake courses, and my work has been published in the magazine, “Living the Photo Artistic Life”. My artistic life has literally changed forever.
This is what makes me truly happy...
