Next to my son photography is my passion. I have always been into art. From a very young age my parents would catch me drawing all over the house, walls, bath tubs etc. Nothing unusual there but I just never got out of the habit. I went on to study fashion design at Cape Tech Design School and while there I won a competition to paint a mural on the SA Cultural And History museum. That was quite an honor! During school I won numerous awards for art and sculpture and to this day I have a self-portrait sculpture on permanent display in a museum. The beginning of my selfie craze.
When Darrell died I felt like I wanted my art to take on a different angle. I have always secretly wanted to be a photographer but the technical side of it was quite daunting to me. I bit the bullet and started teaching myself. With Elijah running around I had the perfect subject to practice on. I have since progressed since then and am now doing shoots for companies and individuals. I thought a nice way to celebrate Mother’s Day and my upcoming birthday was to offer a shoot to one lucky winner. Mommy And Me shoots are definitely my best subject to photograph.
