I grew up in the Eastern Cape, in Gqerberha, formerly, Port Elizabeth, a place of great disparities in the 50s and 60s. I unleashed myself onto Cape Town in the 70s and later, 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 living in an entirely different Cape at the edge of the world. There are multiple narratives in my life; where 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. I garden, swim, or walk on the beach; but mostly I am teaching or painting. Sometimes I just curate the furniture in my house.
