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.
