Breeding experience: I became involved in the cat fancy in 1979 when my mother started breeding Siamese. My own cattery (prefix: Siamlove) was registered in 1991, and I have been breeding Siamese and Orientals on a small scale and showing my cats since July 1991.

Judging experience: I stewarded at shows regularly since 1988. In 1996 I commenced a judge 's training course in the Siamese/Oriental/Balinese section and qualified in 1998. In 1999 I qualified in the Persian/Exotic section. I subsequently qualified in the four sections of the Foreign Group (2005 to 2007). I am currently a student in the Medium Hair section.

I have judged regularly at shows in South Africa since 1998. During 1999/2000, I judged on a number of occasions at shows of the European independent clubs in Belgium, France and Germany.

I am a member of the Cat Judges Incorporated panel, which is affiliated to the Southern Africa Cat Council (SACC).
