I am a Textile Designer by trade, but a designer, an illustrator and an art teacher by passion!
My love of colour, pattern and textures make my work what it is! Alive, fun & full of energy. I use radiant inks, pastels, pencils combined with collage/recycle materials, old magazine cuttings, odd collections and photographs to add a unique & exciting flavor. I am passionate about the basics and even with my computer skills I insist to start with paper and pen or pencil!
My latest claim to fame are my wine labels for Vanden Wines in Australia!
I am a member of SCBWI. I have been published by many successful and leading companies in South Africa, a few in Israel and ebooks internationally. I am also the proud owner a small business called Cloudscape Designs. I design and sell my own unique range of hand-painted t-shirts, recycled jewelry, dream catchers, mobiles, greeting cards and wine labels for every occasion.
My week is a crazy balancing act of teaching art & running my studio.
I'd love to hear from you!
