I grew up up in South Africa but I now live in Dubai. I have been here for about 10 years now. The best bit about Dubai is that it is so global and you meet people from all over the world. I also find the desert beautiful in its own way.
I studied a Fine Art (with hons) degree at Rhodes University in South Africa. After that I worked in London for a couple of years as a food photographer and later as a dot.com photographer. After that I returned home and decided to become an Art teacher so I studied my PGCE and taught while working as a freelance photographer.
Art and nature inspire me. I have always loved art of all kinds. I love encouraging artistic talent in young children and seeing their pride in their work when it is finished.
I am always trying to look at the things in a different way. To actually step aside from the hustle and bustle of daily life and look mindfully at the beauty that surrounds us.
