I grew up in the Eastern Cape, in Port Elizabeth, aka Gqerberha, 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 wear different hats as a teacher, artist and Zen Coach, creating a palimpsest of heroes and villains, with the wind and sea also jostling for centre stage. Sometimes, therapeutically, I garden or walk my dog; other times, I paint or just curate the furniture in my house.
