My love story with painting started as a High School Student in South Africa where I was instructed in the wonderful art of using shapes and colors to create a story. I rediscovered my love for painting 22 years later after immigration to the USA. I became involved in art projects and was commissioned for various residential murals and individual art pieces. Painting has been a significant part of my life ever since.
Capturing the feeling 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 piece of art I create takes me on a lovely journey, when I part with it a tiny bit of myself goes with it.
