Since moving from the Cape to Gauteng, she has been actively involved in exhibitions in Centurion, Brooklyn, and Irene in the Pretoria area. Her inspiration comes mostly from nature. She loves painting flowers, landscapes and sky, historical buildings are amongst her favourites, especially since having lived in Israel in 2008, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv became a great inspiration. She has also recently expressed herself in modern contemporary mixed media work, having been inspired by Piet Mondrian and Paul Klee.She finds herself blessed to have an ability of expression through art, and always tries to glorify God in all she creates on canvas. God being the source of all creation. Col 1:27 – Christ in me, the hope of glory.
