About "Giraffe Earth and Fields"
Mixed Media and Acrylic. A fusion of modern/abstract
and realistic work, combined with textured techniques,
in rich as well as subdued colours integrated throughout
the painting to give the painting its organic look and feel
and to create a balance in depicting the relationship of
colour, the elements of nature, mother earth and wildlife.

Born 1956 - Johannesburg. I was always artistic from a very young age. In my teens I did art mostly for myself, my family and friends. I was also interested in design and architecture and finally went on to study Interior Design in 1980/81 & 82.
Even though I did some formal training in fine art while studying I am mostly a self taught artist which I prefer. I don't like to learn from art teachers as this would affect my own methods of painting etc and helps me to become a more of a unique artist with my own style.
My work is in acrylics and in oils and I love both mediums. My paintings are not realistic renderings although they appear detailed. They are going towards a more emotive and organic expressiveness and at times semi-abstract especially my landscapes. My paintings have a very textile feel and look to them due to the textural finish of the painting which adds to the organic expressiveness. My subjects vary greatly from Still life to Landscapes / treescapes and seascapes to impressionistic work to Abstract work and abstract expressionism.
I greatly admire Jackson Pollock's total freedom of expression and his contribution as an abstract expressionist.
