Creative Life Journey

Creative Life Journey
My life journey began​

in my birth town, Bloemfontein (directly translated, flower fountain), South Africa.

Here I spent most of my childhood adventures on a smallholding just outside of town, growing up with dogs, a cat named 84, cheeky guinea fowl and a pet sheep.

We relocated to Cape Town when I was 8 years old and the beautiful city became my home.
After school

I studied Photography, Desktop Publishing and was privileged to complete a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Brand/Visual Communications at the well-acclaimed AAA School of Advertising, specialising in Art Direction.

My first corporate experience

was whilst working for a company that develops Educational Software as a Conceptual Artist and Marketing Assistant.

In need of a new challenge I ventured to Thailand​

Even though challenging at times I was blessed to make friends who I still keep in touch with today, and leave with the rewarding experience of working with humbling students.

After returning from Thailand, I started working in the printing and branding industry, gaining more experience in design, print, office management and all-round business skills.

In March 2015 I resigned to further my career as a Freelance Graphic Designer and Entrepreneur of a business called Golden Tech (Coping with Technology in your Golden Years), where I assisted not only the elderly but all who felt a bit technologically challenged.

Then one day...

a bouquet of white roses changed my life as I knew it. I was sentimental and had to find a way to make them last forever.

The admirer of the roses became the fiance, and together we (including our cat Ohana) ventured on an adventure to The Netherlands. 

The Netherlands and all its beauty rejuvenated my creativity and has blessed me with this amazing opportunity.
