Since I can remember Art (in some or other form) was part of my life.
I studied Interior Design (not decorating) at Pretoria Technicon (South Africa) after which I worked as a graphic artist for 11 years and painted in my spare time. I only recently started painting fulltime and must admit; this is more fulfilling than I ever imagined it to be!

I love realistic views, vibrant colors and prefer to work in Oil and sometimes Watercolor. My work tends to become decorative/ expressive at times but this gives a balance especially with the realistic approach I take. I choose subjects that relax and sooth I am inspired by nature and love atmosphere in any painting.

I try to experiment as much as the medium letís me and apply it either with a brush, palette knife, my finger or a combination thereof.

Enjoy viewing my work as much as I did creating it!!
