Bianca Gubalke is an award-winning screenplay writer and artist, a passionate gardener, photographer, teacher and metaphysics student.
Born between the Namib Desert, the Atlantic Ocean and the Milky Way, she grew up with a deep connection with nature and a desire to understand the dichotomy between the separation we see out there and the ‘Oneness’ we feel within. Her first poem was published when she was twelve. An early fascination with spiritual healing inspired her to dive into ancient healing traditions, incl. shamanism, meditation and hypnosis, all of which is reflected in her creative work.
Advanced degrees in Germany and France led to over two exciting decades as filmmaker for the European Film & TV industry. In 1994, she returned to South Africa, to cultivate her own garden in a changing world, and to focus on her writing.
She lives in Noordhoek, near Cape Town, with her husband, at least two cats, and the world’s most curious Cape cobra coiling in her paper basket, pretending she’s not there.
Her latest work from the Press Release (August 2017):
