My original art is inspired by my people and my places. I am passionate about creating, and I create designs based on things I am passionate about. A thread of humour can often be detected in my work – probably because a dear friend once taught me to look for humour in every situation to deal with life’s challenges.
I grew up in the Tsitsikamma, the southern coastal region of South Africa, flanked by the Tsitsikamma mountain range, which is often an inspiration for my designs. I spent my childhood gazing up at Witels Peak, the highest mountain in the range, featured in the picture above and in my Tsitsi Cat series below:
