About "Lilies"

I received this flower arrangement as a gift of thanks for some volunteer work. The flowers were the most beautiful I had ever seen - I wasn't sure they were real! They looked like they had been painted and couldn't possibly be plants that had once lived and breathed.

About Nadine

Nadine Lewis

I started doing art seriously when I was 12 years old and had the privilege of attending classes with the the late Bill Ainslie.

The time I spent with Bill Ainslie and his teachers at what became the Johannesburg Art Foundation had a profound influence on my work and my outlook on art. Bill’s style of teaching promoted freedom of expression, self-exploration and innovation.

On finishing school and contrary to Bill’s advice, I “strayed” and chose to be “pragmatic”, studying maths and science, teaching, working in the computer industry and finally ended up in the corporate world.

During all this time, my art remained a mere 'flicker' but finally in my mid-forties, I came to my sense and re-discovered the 'magic'.

I remain a maverick and refuse to be pigeon-holed or settle into one style or one medium. While some may find this 'dilettante' I treat each each painting like a love affair: sometimes we fight; sometimes we don't speak to one another and sometimes ... well what can I say?

If I describe my forties as a 're-awakening' I think I will describe my fifties as the decade of second chances. Ricky Burnett, one of my art teachers from those early years, came back to SA, and it is exhilarating to once again be in that 'safe' explorative and creative space.
