I started painting about four years ago when I discovered my love for art.

The process of applying paint to canvas helps me to achieve peace and balance. This prompted me to go for lessons and further pursue my skills in a quest for perfection.

I recently joined the Thursday class at Lyn’s Art Loft and before relocating to Knysna, I enjoyed a few courses with Neil Moss and also attended classes at Alains’s Art School, an award winning artist and teacher. It was during this time that I took part in a few group exhibitions discovering my love for landscape painting, which gives me the freedom to “make my own mark”.

I also enjoy many other subjects, and recently discovered my love for painting flowers. I work in most mediums with oil and acrylic on canvas being my favourite.
