It is a joyful experience painting these quirky and characterful animals. The family who live just around the corner have a miniature farm yard next to their house. It has been stocked with all sorts of little creatures this summer. Unfortunately many of them don't survive the Christmas festive season so I have to paint them whilst they are still there. Very sad, because I get to know them .... seriously. This little family are certainly a new addition and their glances and stances are human in every way. Once again, I have enjoyed using acrylic inks in gay abandon because of their fluidity and intensity of colour.
I was born in SA during the seventies and enjoyed a colourful childhood. I have always been passionate about painting and drawing and found plenty of stimulating subjects around me. After studying Graphic Design in Durban I worked as a Graphic Artist for various agencies in SA. I finally moved over to the UK in 1997 and have enjoyed many adventures since. My career has been an exciting, versatile one so far and I teach many enthusiastic adults how to paint and draw, as well as demonstrating for art groups in Surrey. I still love to paint outdoors and in my studio. I look forward to many more exciting and rewarding artistic challenges.
