I was born in Krugersdorp, South Africa and I've always had an intense love and fascination for animals, and after graduating high school I began working at Blouberg Conservation Project on a nature reserve in Limpopo province, South Africa, where I had the privilege of working with a wide variety of African Wildlife for almost 14 years. When the project sadly had to close down, I took up a position on one of the local farms as cattle manager for two years, and during this time discovered a love for horses, which then led to me working as a stable manager at a livery yard in Pretoria, South Africa for 3 years.
In 2013 I moved to the UK, where I now reside with my husband. Throughout my adult working life I have been sketching, painting and taking photographs. What started out as a hobby though has now become a passion. I love sharing my love of animals with others, and my art is one way in which I do this.
