In summary I sprang from my parents loins towards the end of 1985 in Cape Town, South Africa.
In 2004 I ran away to London to chase wild dreams of studying fashion. Instead, I landed a job that involved remembering 60 cocktail recipes, making them upon request and serving them to the city folk somewhere between Moorgate and Old Street.
By 2006 I was living in Newcastle upon Tyne. The 3 hours I used to spend commuting every day in London were exchanged for small-town-free-time and afforded me the opportunity to start painting.
In 2010 I got my British citizenship and am now a full time painter lady.
