Art has always been a big part of who I am. In years gone by, I have tried my hand at many different forms of art. Of all of the different things I have tried, fashion design and my current occupation as full time artist have taken up the most of my time.
In 1994, I joined a small local Art School and studied art in all the formats under Muriel Brown, up until 1997. I continued studying art on my own and in 2000; I joined the Rhonzwa Art School for a period of 5 years.
I learnt a lot from Rowna Schwartz, but most importantly she helped me to find my own style. It started out very realistic until I moved into a more unique objective abstract style, which is still visible in my latest paintings. Acrylics, Pastel and Watercolors and Mixed Media have been a part of my portfolio up to now and I enjoy each and every medium.
In 2006 I took up another interest and completed a course in Graphic Art, which I now experiment in and play with some of my art works. And the future might hold some great graphics, who knows.
I work from a small home studio in Krugersdorp, Johannesburg and have the privilege of being a full time artist outside of my Home executive duties. Most of my paintings are painted on inspiration but I do a lot of commissions and special requests. In the last year I have started presenting private art lessons and will continue to do so, as I find it very fulfilling to aid someone else in finding their expression in the world of art.
Through all my art I express the Glory of God and his words, as He has been my greatest inspiration.
