Let me tell you a bit about ¬†myself.
I was born in South Africa and emigrated to¬†the¬†Netherlands in 2002 after marrying my DUTCH¬†¬†husband.¬†We have¬†¬†2 lovely teenagers, Charlize and Fabian.¬†¬†Together we¬†live in a small coastal town in the northern part of The Netherlands.
‚ÄčI am a mixed media Artist, Art JOurnaler and Product Designer.
‚ÄčI am a signature ¬†designer for different craft companies :¬†Studio Light, The Crafters Workshop, Artfoamies¬†and Grafixarts. I just love making designs that people can use in their art!
Art¬†journaling is something I do ¬†daily and in my experience, it can brightens up, even the most¬†dreary day.¬†¬†I try to work in several art styles, not limiting myself to man set¬†borders. I believe that it is part of my creative freedom to explore all styles that I¬†like and that it¬†broadens not only my view of art, but the all over experience too.
My artistic trademark is probably my use of bright & happy colours , Whimsical style and decorative¬†¬† details. ¬†My work is full of layers, movement, vibrant colors and lots of contrast!
Having worked exclusively as an acrylic artist for several years before entering The arts & Crafts world, ¬†My¬†art can be found in Private collections in England, south africa, australia, argentina, u.s.a, canada, germany, namibie, kuwait, u.a.e. and Holland.¬†
I am proud to be a guest tutor in several e-courses and being able to represent gel press as an artist educater.
