this is me

I am a writer, artist and energy worker. A South African by birth, I’ve lived in Namibia, USA, the UK and Sweden. I’m a world nomad who travels and lives where my soul feels at home.

The first three months of 2017 I’m in the USA.

I find inspiration in nature, on buses and from people who are a little different: Patti Smith, Frida Kahlo and Keith Richards are my guides.

Support me by buying my book on Amazon here: A Dreamer’s Life


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step into the world with only a suitcase and a passport? How would it feel to quit your life? Everything about your life? Your marriage, your job, your home, your stuff.

This book takes you on a journey of self-discovery, weaving between dreams and reality. From meerkat encounters in Namibia to the streets of London, from small towns in South Africa to snowy Chicago Winters. It tells of stories and of people, both real and imagined.

Laurika gives us a glimpse inside the mind of a woman on a journey to discover what it means to be free. She shares her most intimate moments of despair, but also shows us the mysterious joy that comes when you accept yourself exactly as you are.

A Dreamer’s Life is a disarmingly honest and ripples with passion, melancholy, humility and gratitude.
