Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

W&N watercolour on smooth cardboard

On our previous property, also an 8.5ha smallholding in Tarlton (South Africa), we had a low rock wall surrounding the 1-acre garden, which gave us a measure of security but also allowed the flocks of guinea fowl roaming the area to visit for a snack. I used to put out seeds for them and would watch their antics and paint them whenever they came for a visit. They got quite used to me and didn’t pay much attention because, after all, they had their sentinels posted on the wall, keeping an eye open for danger!

That smallholding gave me such pleasure for the 27 years we lived there that each detail – trees, flowers, plants, birds – is still deeply engraved in my memory….

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.
