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.

    you are, soooo, good,my ami,,your lines are clean and=sure=,,and your painting/to kill for!!,but,we each who love art and have a try at it, each, find our own way,,yours is,accomplished and well,executed, i used to say i,d like to paint as well as this person or that one,but in the end, being our selfs. is the reward,,,jolante,,we go to a art museum, rush home, and think??i can do what i,ve seen,and give it hell, trying,you have succeeded

  • You are so good for my soul madvlad…. I truly appreciate your support. And yes, I agree, if you try to paint like ‘someone else’, you end up with mediocre work. And I also believe very strongly that we should each try to find our own brush or voice in our art. And that I think, is the most difficult thing to achieve!
