Relationship to Puppetry
I am an enthusiastic and eager puppeteer!
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
My mother is an artist - so we fooled around since we were small. I learned to make my first puppets when I was a minister in Secunda.... and the bug bit me. Now, ten years down the line I am making puppets and telling stories!
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
My Puppet Hero is: Bekkige Bobbejaan (my own creation)
My Puppetmaker hero is Toby von Eck
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
a Lion
More About Me:
If I could only do puppets, I would. I am a drama teacher at a school in our town.

During weekends I do puppetshows in Theatres and churches.

I have a Maters Degree in Theology (Creative preahing) and a busy with my doctorate .... I want to combine the visual arts (ex puppets) with teaching teenagers about GOD.
My Company/Troupe/Group
Peter Productions .... changing your world through storytelling!
