I am a South African living in Cape Town. My backgound and experience are largely in the arts. For 25 years I was a teacher specializing in Piano, Choir, Marimba and Solo Singing. After resigning from teaching in 2000, I turned my attention the the visual arts and have, to date, enjoyed some success in this field - including an invitation to exhibit in Florence and the completion of a large commission for a guest-house in South Africa. My most recent work has been the writing of a novella which is currently being submitted for publication.
