About the artist
A passion for oil palette knife painting.
From photo-realism in portraits (pencil and oil) to complete freedom with painting with a palette knife, which I truly love doing.
Drawing for the last 7 years, doing oil paintings for a year and a half. Self taught artist using the help of an art teacher.
I was born in Northern Rhodesia on a fine December day in 1957. My family and I lived there until I was 5 years of age. My mother and father thought it would be a great new venture to go to Johannesburg and so we did, just before independence.
Drawing is a passion of mine, watching the beauty of a person come alive this I want to share with others.
Art was a subject I did at school and always had an interest in it. In Std 7 I won first prize for a drawing competition.
My creative side lead me into the hairdressing field that I excelled in. I worked in the newly developed Eastgate Shopping Centre, for Dave and Johan. (Shows my age)
My husband and 3 children have spent most of our lives in Gauteng. My husbands work then allowed us the wonderful opportunity to move to Hartebeespoort dam, I have since moved back to Honeydew Johannesburg.
About the art and inspiration
One sunny day 7 years ago I rediscovered, the magic of drawing and how it inspires. I quickly pursued with my regained interest, this time with pencil drawing, my skills quickly started to resurface. I eagerly pursued this interest and encouraged it to grow.
To polish up on my skills I decided to have lessons with an artist, to help with some direction, and to learn more about pencil technique and shading.
Using these new found techniques of pencil artistry, I became inspired with many facets especially with beautiful sensual art.
Then ventured into oil painting a year and half ago with another art teacher, my passion seems to be in pallet knife painting.
I welcome feedback and would love to hear from you. Get in touch to find out more about my unique portraits.
