I am an artist, ceramist & chef, working in Durban North. I studied Fine art at Stellenbosch University, and focus mainly in oil paint.

 

However my studio is a hive of creativity and there is always something new on the go from ceramics, stationary to painting or pottery lessons and cookery demos.

My paintings are all South African subject matter, from flowers, landscapes, holidays in Mozambique and Transkei, to trees and animals. I also enjoy painting abstract landscapes in bright colours and splashes of watercolour here and there for design work.

what inspires me

“My work is a reflection of places I have been to and photographed. I often just see something and feel the urge to photograph it and turn it into a painting. I love seeing my paintings in other people’s houses. Although they are personal memories, when they are hung in other people’s homes, they bring little pieces of the outdoors in. They showcase a story of Africa which you glimpse every time you pass them hanging on the wall.”
