I am a South-African born artist and printmaker; now home in the beautiful
I love the Sonoran desert and our beautiful surroundings.
I live in Rio Verde, with my husband, 3 young children, and horses.
I love to draw in pencil, charcoal and pastel, and then convert my handdrawings
Personally I have an adventurous spirit, always looking for new ideas, new
places to visit, learning about people groups and cultures, testing old ideas,
and pushing myself to try new things. I am always creating and analyzing,
combining adventures already lived, with dreams imagined, and an
optimistic hope for the future.
My art is depicting 'moments in time' that convey a series of emotions - love,
elation, joy, excitement, peace and hope.
I love to add some surreal or whimsical symbols to my work, to encourage
and uplift, and to bring to light the strength within the human spirit, even in
spite of times of struggle.
Mostly, I want my art to encourage those in the midst of difficult
circumstances, to find hope, courage and freedom.
Within the huge array of art mediums, I have worked with Photography,
Drawing, Pastel, printmaking and painting in oil. I enjoy all the different
mediums – depending on the outcome I want to create. I also use skills
learned from one medium to use in another medium.
