Living with Nature through Art
It's hard not be passionate about Africa's beautiful wildlife and places! I've been searching for the perfect nature photographs since I bought my first camera back in 1982.
I've lived close to the bush for many years, in Omaruru, then Skukuza and have always travelled at every opportunity with my husband to wild and remote places to experience the essence of life, in our corner of the planet.
Kruger, Botswana, Etosha and the Zambezi region are favourite destinations but there is also great beauty to be found close to home.
A vast collection of photographs led me to create a range of BLANK CARDS depicting the beauty in the detail.
I also sell printed IMAGES on canvas or fine art paper.

I have a long and happy association with clay. Starting in 1982 it's been on and off, then in 1998 I set up my own studio in Omaruru, Namibia.
I've tried all sorts of clays and glazes, styles and decorations, but in 2005 I was inspired by the birds in my riverside garden to create the 'Classic Birds' range. I expanded this range when I moved to Windhoek, to include wild animals and plants.
I love working with clay and now immerse myself in it full-time!
I started writing about my observations and wanderings in nature in 2009, while living in the Kruger Park.
