Live in Knysna, out of town near Simola.
Went to my very first art lessons ever in January 2016, with Sheila Cooper Collins in Sedgefield. A wonderful art teacher, who taught me from scratch. At first I practiced drawing and really enjoyed pencil, then some colored pencils and then some pastels. Another person from the art group kindly donated some acrylic paints and said “try these”.
Well, I couldn’t imagine ‘drawing’ with a paint brush! Anyway, a bit of perseverance worked and I started doing portraits, which I really enjoyed, and then dabbled with watercolours a bit. In Jan 2019 I bought my 1st oils … which is what I now use nearly exclusively.
