I was brought up on a beautiful farm in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, and my mother–a gifted artist herself–always encouraged me as a child to use my God given talent. I had no formal art training and it was only in my mid 30′s that I returned to my passion and began by illustrating a series of children’s books, and painting wildlife and birds for calendars.

That was the beginning of an exciting new era with my artwork as I was given permission to do a series of paintings with the little girl in Sleeping Beauties who was born and raised in the Namibian Desert, and who had an amazing rapport with wild animals.

I do this because I know about a well-kept secret tucked on the second floor of a shop.
