My studio is close to the beach, a long sea-fronting promenade and not far from the V&A Waterfront. The view of the ocean is outstanding, marvellous, world-class. Often I watch dolphins at play. In the breeding season, it's not unusual to see whales close in to the shore. Throw open the windows and tan all over. The studio's in one of the handiest parts of Cape Town. A stone's throw away is a giant supermarket. Woolworths' upmarket prepared food is just two minutes away. Parking place available.
