"Although I was raised in a liberal household, I married into a conservative farming family. It was made clear that I should play the role of the supportive wife. Unfortunately, this is the case for so many women. For that reason, most of my art revolves around females and their plea for recognition."
“I studied and worked as a Fashion designer in Cape Town before marriage. In 2008, I had my first international art exhibition and my career developed from there. I have since taken part in numerous exhibitions, Biennales, and Art Fairs in the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, The Netherlands, China and India. I have received prizes for my work and have been chosen as a Finalist in competitions, the highlight being Global Arts Awards in Dubai, 2017. My work has been featured in several articles and magazines. I will have my first solo exhibition at the end of October 2020, in Rome. I was the owner of the Kunstehuijs Art Gallery in Swellendam, South Africa from 2011 to 2017 where I not only represented myself but also numerous prominent South Africans.”
