About "Ndebele man"
The young man had just completed his initiation, and is dressed in traditional Ndebele beadwork for the celebrations that follow. He and his fellow initiates were dignified and proud of their new status in the community. The beadwork is usually made by the womenfolk in the family. Because his family live on our farm, we were invited to the celebrations. I painted this portrait from photographs that I'd taken during the day's festivities.
I painted and illustrated for the advertising industry until my first solo exhibition in 1990. Subsequently I've been painting in oils, watercolours and pastels for exhibitions and commissions. I also illustrate children's books, the most recent being a children's fairy book written by long-time friend Margaret Roberts.
2 solo exhibitions - 1991 and 1994
3 year Art Diploma at Durban's Natal Technical College.
