Art and Archery do Mix


An accomplished artist, from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague and the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome now residing in Tuscany, Italy country. Her life is a transformation, adaption, joy, and pain. Layers that define each one of us, making each one of us unique.

 In her own words – “That is why I use glaze technique for all my paintings. Shadow, light, colours, depth, backgrounds that flow from one painting into the other, yet they can stand on their own, like the stages and passages of life itself”.

Through her paintings she is rediscovering her distant African roots and her works are extremely striking and fascinating and are very much in demand as a collector’s item.
She is also an accomplished children’s book writer and illustrator with parts of her proceeds being contributed to the Foundation Kye4kids, “Education for every child”.

Visualisation through visual imagery has been an effective way to communicate both abstract and concrete ideas since the dawn of humanity.

Visualisation is an Essential Part in Archery
