I like to call myself a 'Creative' as it doesn't limit me to one line of work. I love being able to illustrate, design, style, retouch AND do photography. I am from Cape Town, South Africa but currently based in Barcelona, Spain (a creatives' dream city!) I take on all kinds of creative jobs, be it retouching for magazines, artwork for advertising, logo design or even traveling locally and abroad for photography assignments! I LOVE the versatility of my work and that I can express myself through different genres and fields of work. I studied Graphic Design and worked briefly in advertising in my home town of Cape Town. I then decided to travel and ended up working in Commercial Art (hand-painted illustrations/artwork) in Marbella Spain as well as in Rome, Italy for many years. When I returned to Cape Town I continued to illustrate as a freelancer (editorial/advertising/publishing and educational) I also worked full-time as a photo-editor and retoucher for a large photo studio in Cape Town called Orms - for 6 years. This involved all areas of retouching, design and photo manipulation for film, magazines, advertising, photographers, publishing, editorial, fashion etc. I have been working as a freelance photographer, retoucher, illustrator and designer since having my son in 2007. I enjoy being a mom and working flexible hours from my home-office in beautiful Barcelona.
