About "Light Shines in the Darkness "

The coffee in my cup has gone cold, but the heat emanating from my hands is enough to trick my mind into thinking that it's still hot enough to drink. It's the sheer intensity of the story that causes my palms to feel hot and sweaty. Leonie continues at a pace that leaves me no time to come to terms with her thinking that she was to blame for the death of her stillborn.

"I managed to make matric, I managed to get away from this guy, finally. But even through Varsity (University), it was the same pattern," Leonie puts her cup down. "Psychologically, your brain is amazing. You just shut down. I just decided that this didn't happen to me. But your soul, your spirit. It's all there. It's like a big storm inside of you. So I did really well at Art in Varsity, but nobody knew what to do with me, because I was unteachable. I didn't trust anybody. I mean how? Especially me. How do you trust a man?" I nod in agreement, hoping that it comes across in an empathetic way, rather than sympathetic - not in my entire lifetime could I ever feel what she felt...

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting...as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
