About "All Her Worldly Goods"
I loved the picture since the first moment I saw it, and it literally begged me to start painting it. The poor lady has all her worldly goods packed on one little donkey! Why do we still complain about what we have/don't have? It evoked emotion in me, it inspired me to do my best with it, and I enjoyed the sepia tones of the earthy colours.
I've been drawing since I was quite young and people encouraged me to go on, which was very good, because young children tend to stop drawing at about 10 years of age. So, after school I did stop drawing/painting and only started again by going for lessons privately a long time afterwards, and eventually ended up going to Ruth Prowse School of Art for refreshment. I went on doing fabric painting professionally and sold quite a few African stuff to overseas buyers through a shop. A few years ago started with oils and eventually tried acrylics, now I do not want to go back to oils, I like painting with acrylics so much. I love faces. I like to paint people too. I also really love colours and to paint realistically. Abstract art, unless it evokes an emotion in me with the use of colour, I don't understand fully - I just like it when any painting 'speaks' to you. So, I guess, realistic art in most forms appeals to me, especially accompanied by bright, vibrant colours - I just love it when a painting 'jumps' out at you!
Exhibited at Hogsback "Christmas in July" festival recently and sold some paintings there.
Matriculated, and studied (later) at Ruth Prowse School of Art.
