About

In Love with Creation !

I am passionate about what I create. I love painting all things imaginative, symbolic, and inspired by our connection to Nature and the Universe in a visionary way, incorporating mythical, archetypal, folk and fantasy elements. Ever since holding my first crayon at age two I have been fascinated by art; possessed by the need to draw, paint, print, sculpt or sew what my imagination conjured up.

Born into a multi-national family in South Africa 40 years ago; I was always sensitive to the expressive beauty and diversity of different cultures and my unique perspective on art has coloured my intuitive artistic vision.
I am a self-taught artist who has spent a number of years travelling, exhibiting and living in England, Scotland, South Africa and Australia. I am now settled in the beautiful Mississippi Valley : Iowa, USA, where I create the original hand made jewellery and artwork for sale here and internationally.

The biggest inspiration on which I draw is Imagination and Nature : the natural world both around us and the magical within us. The essence of my work expresses the flow between our inner selves and that of the timeless, archetypal world which will always exists without. I have always been moved by the rich world of folklore and mythology in which all cultures relay the human condition in symbolic, story-telling form.
I explored this interest further with a psychology degree, and found that Jungian Archetypes and his work on the collective unconsciousness resonated strongly with me and my affinity with folk tales.
I began to see my art not only as a personal expression but that of the collective memory of all people, a visual rendering of what moves us in our daily experiences of relationships to each other and our environment.

"Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another. The function of the artist is the mythologization of the environment and the world.” ~ Joseph Campbell ~
