After returning to South Africa for good, we stay in St Helena Bay on the West Coast.
I am more of a photographer and art was never my strong point until COVID-19 happened. At that time, my husband and I were staying in Salalah, Oman where he was working. Knowing we were housebound for an uncertain time and photography was impossible, I had to get something to keep me busy indoors. This is when I reach out to (very limited) Art & Craft shops to get whatever I can lay my hands on to keep busy with. Painting was one of them, and since then I had an interest in painting. Except for painting I also learned to do some other crafts too, like pour painting and resin work.  I have no formal training or qualifications in art whatsoever. Due to lack of space, I have to start reducing.
