South Africa is a country where livelihood largely depends on what you do with your hands so the craft has become an enormous and fast-growing industry.


I grew up cultivating this passion and when I moved to Perth I expected to pursue my dream of opening a craft workshop with ease. The beauty and skill of craftsmanship are inspiring, but the task of pursuing this in Perth has proved long and hard.


But here I am! From drawing to pastels, acrylic and oil painting, fabric painting, mosaic, murals, candle making and scrapbooking. I have tried it all. My dream of opening Fusion Cre8tive has finally become a reality and I hope to share my passion with many.

My workshop specialises in Art Parties, group events, Paint & sip, kids art classes (but I'm open to absolutely anything, just ask!).

Let your cre8tivity shine!
