My Bio
I was born in Pretoria, South Africa and spent many hours in art galleries and museums with my father as a child. he always discussed the works and taught me to look for meaning in them. I was deeply influenced by the illustrations in Grim's Fairy Tales which my mother used to read to us. Also she stimulated my imagination by finding faces and figures in the clouds in bushes etc. Now I look back at the above as my earliest art training. I went to Johannesburg College of Art.

It seems to me life is largely about discovery,and the most important discoveries are those about our selves. How can we understand each other if we don't understand ourselves? The first utterance in most people is Ma or Mama, or the equivalent. I had done none of that and it was very late for me to start speaking, which worried my parents. One night after my mother had put out the light she heard "Mommy when is daddy coming home?" Returning she found my elder brother fast asleep and I stood up in the cot wide awake. My first utterance was a sentence! It seems that even at that age the way I operated was different, and this fact effected a
