Some years ago I survived a serious attack on my life. During the year of recovery, I did two drawings and found the activity both calming and exciting.
I am studying under Leon Fourie.
I have simplified my life completely and now paint full time.

Art for me, is an intensely personal expression of how I appreciate and perceive life and people.

    I would call it The Critics or perhaps Critique
    I recognized Nomsa from your paintings of her.
    This work is very special… it tells a story, shows emotion, and focus, and is a One of A Kind! Bravo!

  • This is so wonderful to hear Heather; thank you!

    A wonderful creation Jolante. It takes me back to the Norman Rockwell paintings and the story they always seemed to tell. :o)
