I've had a colourful career teaching old and young on recreational, school and tertiary levels. I also practice many disciplines. At the University of the Free State I majored in sculpture. At UNISA I majored in painting and much later I completed a Masters at DUT majoring in mixed media art.
I love teaching art to kids, teens and adults. I believe there's never a flop only a new creation and it's rewarding to see students create masterpieces and gain confidence.
Art is therapeutic and can bring inner healing. Art enables students to develop the right hand side of their brains. They develop their skills and grow as artists. We need art in our lives. So I invite you to become a culture vulture!
