"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time" - Thomas Merton
My life to date has been as colourful as my artworks. I was born and raised in Zimbabwe and even though I have not lived in Africa since I was studying fine arts and graphic design in the 1980s, I have a strong affinity for the raw natural beauty of Africa and its people. Often my artworks will unconsciously reflect this deep connection. Since leaving Africa I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to many exotic destinations and along the way have met interesting souls and had adventures that have influenced my life. It is from these life experiences and my spiritual beliefs that my art emerges. In response to my passion to spread my energy and inspire others through my art my works have been exhibited throughout the world – including New Zealand, UK, France, Italy, Singapore and Australia.
