ABOUT ME

I am a South African artist and an established art teacher based in Johannesburg. Equally comfortable painting with watercolours, oils, acrylics, pastels and mixed media, my work is diverse.

 

I share my passion for life and painting by teaching and conducting art workshops and art holidays. 

I am inspired by life and nature and try to capture the magic of sunlight. I am fascinated by the way light falls on an object and transforms a mundane scene into something beautiful and brilliant. Our strong African light has hugely affected the way I paint. I also like to capture a moment in time and love to paint from life.

 

I have studied with some of the top artists in the country. My work can be viewed at exclusive galleries in South Africa. I have also exhibited as far afield as the Del Bello Gallery in Toronto, Canada. Albi in France and the IWS Cafe Gallery in Kosova. My paintings are on display in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, USA and the United Kingdom.
