About "Bearing Fruit"
I have never been moved to still lifes other than for practice, however, this composition came to me in a dream so vividly that I was compelled to do it. I have done it almost exactly as I saw it in my dream and have entitled it "Bearing Fruit" alluding to the fruit of the Holy Spirit found in Gal 5:22ff
The human condition is what most inspires me; visually I am moved most by the human form, the ocean and mountains. My inbuilt creative quality aroused a desire to begin drawing and sketching from a young age but financial constraints resulted in my education in art coming to me through observation of others methods. I have always pursued my art simply as an uncontrollable need to create and only recently decided to begin producing works to sell. I am currently working in the studio under the mentorship of Paul Munro, a well known South African landscape artist.
