My brother and I were the first set of twins born at the Mary Font Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa.
I have a medical background.
My mother had her own studio, so I grew up with all crafts and they have always been a part of my life.
I have been doing silk ribbon embroidery for more than 20 years.
I make my own ribbons and the cloth is milled for me, to my specifications.

Hiking via Kirstenbosch Gardens and up Table Mountain in Cape Town where there is abundant nature and colour.
