Originally from Zimbabwe, I came to live in Portugal in 2014 having spent several years in the UK prior to that. I started out in art in 1997 when I undertook evening classes in oil painting. I loved this creative release from my stressful full-time IT work! Inevitably, this lead me to further studies and exploration with a variety of mediums. I now work primarily in acrylics and pastels, and hold a Diploma in Painting & Drawing from the London College of Art and also studied Pet Portraiture with them.
