About "Kenya Girl"
A fantastic photographer, Mario Gerth allowed me to paint one of his stunning photos. His work is wonderful and I had a hard time in deciding what to do. However I am so happy with my final decision. She was an absolute pleasure to paint and I loved every minute that I worked on her.
I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself and let you into the world I live in. I am from South Africa, where I grew up and spent my childhood. When I was 17 I moved to Brunei for four years, where I stayed with my parents and travelled quite a bit, which I really enjoyed seeing how other people and cultures live is very intriguing. While I was in Brunei, I had a wonderful opportunity to stay in Singapore and study make up and nail artistry. After the time has passed, very quickly i might add, I moved back to South Africa. While I was in Brunei I had also started to learn Ballroom dancing, I continued dancing and started to compete when i moved back to South Africa, this was a very big part of my life and took up a lot of time due to all the hours you have to put in. In between dancing I started to learn how to paint. I had an amazing teacher who taught me a lot. As soon as I started I knew that painting was for me, I just loved it and could spend hours and hours painting and live in a wonderful world of my own. I then however decided to start studying and I had less time for my art as I was still dancing. I wanted to continue my dancing career which then brought me to Italy where I am now currently living. I am now studying and painting and have put on hold my dancing.
