I was born and raised in South Africa. As an only child with few friends, I kept myself entertained with various arts, crafts and hobbies, and wrote to pen pals from all over the world joining the global community long before the Internet came along.

After studying horticulture and then spending some years travelling on and off, I moved to New Zealand in 2001.

Horticulture didn't work out for me - partly due to health issues that started to emerge at the time so I ended up working as a secretary and medical typist for many years. Later I went on to a career in publishing working mostly in online communications and as a freelance editor .

I did my time in the corporate world doing various city office jobs that never suited me until at last, in 2016 I achieved my dream of moving to the country. I now live in rural New Zealand and spend my days happily immersed in my favourite childhood activities of arts, crafts, writing, some gardening, walking the country roads and spoiling my darling rabbit, Trixie.

It's not easy following the author-artist lifestyle - sadly it's true what they say, 'you don't make money writing / painting', which is why I'm turning to my fans for support.

In return I will provide you with exclusive behind-the-scenes content showing you how I create my artworks and writing.
