W&N watercolour on X-pressit 300gsm
Hydrangeas on my kitchen table – Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa

Hydrangeas don’t lie. Well, if they talked they wouldn’t lie. To me they speak of Summer and their fading colours speak of Autumn. In winter they are silent and in Spring they shout, “We’re here! We’re back! And Spring has come with us!”

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
