I am an expressive artist and mental health advocate based in South Africa. Painting for me is more than just a way to make money. My business journey started off as a therapy suggested by my psychologist. She asked me to attend a few art classes after my third major depression episode.
Since then it evolved into much more! Yes, I still use it as an outlet, but I have embraced the healing it provides and that even though I live with mental illness, I am still empowered.
Welcome to my corner where I showcase my bold, impressionist works of art and where I share bits of my mental health journey too.
Every bit of paint I spread on canvas is guaranteed to represent every fibre of my being!
Step into your light
The works bellow are a selection of the most popular I have created and of course include my personal favourites. They say that the only time one wastes paint, is if you leave it in the tube. As a testament to that, I often keep empty tubes. I keep it to remind myself I tried. I remind myself that I am growing.
Welcome to the front row seat of my exciting journey as an artist thriving in South Africa!
