I was born in 1963 and grew up in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
When I was 21 years old, I left South Africa to join a Kibbutz in Israel and, after extensive traveling in Europe and America, I settled on the coast in California. I lived there amongst the redwoods and oaks and above the mighty Pacific for 30 years. During that time, I visited Cape Town often. In 2013 I returned to South Africa to live. For most of my life I have been a visual person, creatively exploring painting, photography and drawing. My writing was always private.
Since my first Life Righting Course in 2022, I have been writing regularly and have taken on the task of refining work and reading it out loud. I am exploring writing both my own stories and those I discover in this richly storied land.
