Artist's Statement


I am a visual artist, painting in acrylics and oil paint. I live in Hillcrest KZN and paint from my studio on the property. 

Since lockdown and the restrictions on daily life, I have found my focus has changed. The need for colour has become more important to me, I believe it has a powerful impact on my emotional well-being. The restrictions on "looking out" have been replaced by "looking up". I am inspired by the natural world, amazed by the constantly changing skies and changing seasons. 

I like to work abstractly. I use texture in my work and often sand down, scratch, and remove the paint layers to achieve the surface I want. Colour is mostly used in thin veils with many glazes. Painting is my refuge and delight!
