About Me:
Born and raised in Que Que, Rhodesia, lived through the 'liberation struggle' and 'transformation' of Rhodesia into Zimbabwe. Went to Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. Worked in advertising up in Johannesburg and survived commuting on my bike in Jo'berg traffic. Founding member of Johannesburg MTB Club where I met the love of my life. Raced XC at national & provincial level. Established and edited RIDE magazine, and co-authored 4 books on MTB in RSA. After baby nr. 3, we decided that the 'transformation' of South Africa shared too many ominous similarities with that of Zimbabwe and there wasn't going to be a pot of gold for us or our kids at the end of the Rainbow Nation...thus we embarked upon the very difficult (and expensive) decision in 2004 to wipe out our entire identity and network in one flight far, far south to Sydney. Becoming more thickly settled as each year passes, although I do sometimes miss the wild freedom of chaos, and the lack of stifling regulation that is life in Africa...

This is a my piece of Functional Art. For a change, I have custom airbrushed a new, plain black carbon fibre hardtail mtb frame for myself. My left-brained husband built it up for me from all the…

Airbrushing a Ridley Noah

I'm making good progress on airbrushing a Ridley Noah CF frame, with some rather complex duplicate. I'm 'blogging' the process on , for those of you out there who are interested in following...

The pic. below is where I am at today. I've completed the airbrushing on the angels, now it's hand-brushing in the miniature details. Next I tackle a graphic on the head…

Hello Susanne

You can find out about Wollongong cycleway here

The ride north along the beaches is nice provided the wind isn't howling like it has been the past week.
