I am a flow artist and photographer, based on a farm, in Montagu, South Africa.
It all started when I was 9 years old and my dad gave me a yellow Minolta underwater camera. I was fascinated by the ability to capture a moment in time and be able to keep it forever. I was captivated by this magical piece of equipment. From that day, I fell in love with the ability to capture life’s memories. I bought my first Nikon SLR when I was 16, and life started revolving around the beauty I could capture with my camera.
I love all kinds of photography, but life steers you in a certain direction sometimes, & I managed to become involved in lots of commercial photography & event photography for about 15 years. I now love taking pictures of nature, especially plants, insects & animals. I have also discovered the world of art, and am busy creating original art, as well as art combined with photography. Another passion of mine is to teach photography, & I offer a variety of courses on my Farm Eden, based at the foot of the beautiful Langeberg mountain range.
Photography & art are my passions & over the years, I have been blessed with meeting so many wonderful people through my photography. I hope my work brings you pleasure, & thank you for taking the time to visit my web site. If you are a young photographer or artist, starting out, my advice to you is to keep going and enjoy. Dont ever give up on your passion. Follow your dreams. If you are a potential client, I look forward to working with you. I work in all the towns of the Langeberg area, which include Montagu, Robertson, McGregor, Ashton & Bonnievale, as well as travel to all parts of South Africa & the World. I am at peace when I have my camera or paint brush in my hand & have an opportunity to capture & create something unique & wonderful. Thank you to all my clients for the support over the years.

Flow artist and Photographer – nature art & sacred geomerty
I love using all types of paint, ink, watercolors, oils, mediums (anything that is liquid and can flow). I am continually experimenting with media and paint, to create unique art works. I am mostly covered in paint, and sometimes use the finest of brushes to finish off my pieces. I usually have a dog/s and cat/s keeping me company while I work. I have a large studio space where I have my computer, my photo studio and art studio. I hope to brighten your day with one of my creations.
