My love story with painting started as a student in South Africa. I was instructed in the wonderful art of using shapes and colors to create a story.
I rediscovered my love for painting after immigration to the USA. I volunteered for various art projects in my community and was also commissioned for various residential murals and individual art pieces. Painting has been a significant part of my life ever since.
Capturing the emotion of a moment in time is everything! The use of color to emphasize the emotion in that moment inspires me. I like to experiment with a wide range of subject matter. My art is influenced by the vibrant culture and vistas of my home country South Africa
Every painting takes me on a lovely journey, when I part with it a tiny bit of myself goes with it !
