I am currently working as a full - time artist and facilitating adult drawing and painting lessons from my home studio in Knysna, Western Cape. My art medium of preference is currently oils on canvas.
My art is a vital means of self-expression in a never ending quest for the “ideal way” for me,personally, to achieve this.
My recent subject matter includes portraits, still life, landscapes and the wooden carved marionette.
