Have wanted to paint a bullfighter, since reading Ernest Hemingway many years ago & seeing the action in Madrid. First attempt was too static, but was real pleased with the way this came together, the man, the beast, the cape, all swirling together.

I appreciate all facets of life, the beauty of creation in all its diversity- so paint people (expressive faces & those that tell a story) flowers, landscapes, cats are a particular love also. Enjoy colour & texture, so oils is preferred medium though have worked in acrylic & watercolor, as well as sculpture in clay. Have been commissioned to do murals, landscapes again with the feeling of traveling into the picture. Often have a spiritual message in the subject matter and have written short notes as I have meditated on the artwork afterward. Being creative is very therapeutic for me and I know others that it has helped to be set 'free', so believe in the means of expressing one's inner self.
December 2000 -1st Solo, then each year thereafter joint exhibitions at Hermanus Art Society, Vermont Art Circle and with Group of 12 Women artists (Book Club) The latter ones generally with a theme & in 2008 exhibited "Miniatures". Have participated in various exhibitions in & around Hermanus & Somerset West over the years.Completed commissions for Dept of Tourism, Western Cape.. My 2nd solo exhibition was held at Bellini Gallery, Main Road, Hermanus with the theme "People & Places" My main emphasis was to paint portraits of the people with whom I worked daily plus friends in the community on Volmoed where I live & work. I was able to bless the staff by giving them their portraits as a Christmas gift - the joy & laughter that brought was very special. The official opening on 3 December was well attended & great fun with several sales also.
