I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1949.
Studying at the University of Stellenbosch I obtained a Bachelor degree in Art. Thereafter I continued my studies for one year as a guest student at Fokwangschule für Gestaltung in Essen-Werden, Germany. Returning to South Africa I started my career as an Art Director in Pretoria.
Immigrating to Sweden 1977, I commenced my work as an artist in painting. Presently I am living and working in Malmö.
Being musical I played the violin and piano and this musicality can been seen in my work today. My interest in theatre and ballet also reflects itself in my work. I am an eager reader and command four languages. With a single hcp, I am an ardent golfer and I love the outdoor life.
Parallel to working professionally in Sweden, I have taken part in the following educational art courses: 1978 Västerås Art School.
