About "Elephant 2"
This order forced me to make my own frame and as it were in a new area I moved in it helped me to advertise just boosting me with the craving of creating something
NOW WHAT BETTER INSPIRATION THAN A LOVELY LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER. I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO CHOOSE HER NAME AND JEWEL WERE MY CHOICE. So here she is with me, only 3 weeks old. I started with pencil sketches as a child to calm me down as I had epilepsy and that worked for me, as I grew older the love for art stuck with me and I continue to use different mediums like watercolor and pastel. However living in a small place where art where not popular and things like oil paint where not easily found, this forced me to start carving my pictures and do the normal oil painting over that giving it a 3D look. This form became popular for me and I stuck to it.
Done a couple of small exhibitions and made a few local newspapers like "Witbank Observer" and "Independent Newspaper" and saw one of my paintings on TV "SABC 2" for the first time.
Self trained with the help from above
