Service Description

Refined, vibrant writing of feature articles, blogs and reviews about Art from varied perspectives and in any style preferred. Capable of developing a clear, strong angle from brief. An independent thinker, detail- oriented and can stick to a brief.

Perfectly placed to write for international publications about the Art and cultural scene in South Africa crossing over into fashion, music, film, reviewing books, interviewing authors and so on, if needed. I'm also reliable, ethical, hardworking and friendly.

Regular freelance beats includes blogging for a leading art investor bank in South Africa where I review the local art scene, interview leading artists and musicians visit and review exhibitions and so on.

I am aesthetically and culturally aware and trained with my BA degree from Wits University where I majored in English, Drama and Film and studied History of Art for two years. Then went on to complete a post graduate diploma at the University of Cape Town in Higher Education.

Flexible writing ability therefore capable of writing full length feature articles, press releases and so on relating to a variety of subjects.

Another strength is an ability to write about alternate healing and health modalities and yoga as I practice and teach yoga regularly and have written many articles along these lines previously.

I love life and am excited about 2011!
I live in a lovely suburb called Parkhurst with my husband Mike and have a daughter on the way.
