Study for 'Frosty Night at the River' by 

From a reference called ‘The River’ provided by Elizabeth Kendall
Pencil on paler 30×23cm
A South African river scene that turned into a winter night painting.



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.
