A LITTLE BACK STORY….

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. But my true love for art began when I took Visual Arts as a subject in high school all thanks to an art teacher who through her own passion for art. I graduated high school with a 99% average in Visual Arts and a love for fine art that would eventually bring me to quit my job just 8 months after graduating university. I graduated from Inscape Education Group with a Bachelors Degree in Design, specializing in Interior Design, but after a few months working in the industry, I could no longer ignore my urge to make art a full time passion.

I am blessed to be married to the most amazing man, Duncan Hayward. We met in High School and started dating in Grade 11, 6 years ago. In 2016, on the 17th of September we were married for all time and eternity in the Johannesburg Temple. I am so grateful to share this life and the life to come with my best friend and true love.

I was born in Pretoria, Sunny South Africa on the 24 of March 1995. South Africa is my homeland, it is the only homeland I know. I grew up in a home full of colorful chaos and lots of love with my parents and baby brother (in spite of the fact that he is already 19, he will always be my baby brother).

And now as my husband and I have been married, my family has grown and will continue to do so.
