I grew up in the Eastern Cape, in Port Elizabeth, a place of great disparities in the 50s and 60s, then unleashed myself onto Cape Town in the 70s. Later, I found myself in the evocative, inimitable Johannesburg of the 1980s. After many rites of passage and a number of years of studying, working and travelling, I am back in the Cape at the edge of the world. There are multiple narratives in my life; I live as a teacher, artist, Zen coach in training and mother but sometimes things overlap, creating a palimpsest of images: heroes, villains, wind and sea all jostle for centre stage. Sometimes, though, I just garden or walk my dog on the beach. Other times, I paint a bit or just curate the furniture in my house.
