Although I was always able to draw, I never really started painting seriously until the year 2000. Once the painting bug bit, there was no going back. Oils are my preferred medium, although I do enjoy pastels and drawing as well.
I have had no formal training; most of my work comes from my passion for the pure love of art. My earlier work was significantly different to what I do now, and I’m sure it will keep on changing as the years pass. I work a lot with the palette knife, as I enjoy texture immensely. I’ve developed a style that I feel comes naturally, and I believe that even though my techniques may change, my use of a palette knife and my marks, will make my paintings recognisable as my art work.  The more one learns; the more difficult it gets. The more my paintings improve, the more I expect them to improve. It’s an endless cycle.

After moving to Cape Town at the end of 2010, I found my teacher Laura Wenman. Laura’s classes have been extremely beneficial. Everything she has taught me, I have been able to take and apply to my own style, it’s no longer hit and miss, even though my paintings take on a life of their own. Painting is not what I am, it is who I am.

Since moving to Cape Town I have joined
SASA (South African Society of Artists)
BASE (Blaauwberg Art Society)
Belville Arts Association (Art.b Gallery)
These societies have given me wonderful opportunities to exhibit my art work.
