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.

    Wow this is spectacular Jolante. I am sure that Louisette will love this. You have captured his gentle soul and strong heart. Beautiful masterful work indeed.

  • Hi Anthea, both do… I think this portrait has given Ruan a ‘swollen’ head. And I am starting another one of him this week. He is relatively free and is able to sit for me for extended periods…
    Thanks so much!
