Welcome to my Artist’s Corner. Sit back and relax while you travel part of my journey with me.
I invite you to enter my world as an Artist and to tell you about the gift I received as an artist.
I started sketching at the age of 17 years, mostly faces, as people intrigued me. I later progressed to my next passion - Nature. The beauty of Nature and People allowed me to see the gift of the True Master of Art, GOD, who in HIS infinite wisdom bestowed upon me the gift, passion and urgency to create. Each painting became a work of art only through the ability that God had entrusted upon me, so all glory to GOD my father. A gift which I must admit sadly I ignored in the quest for human acceptance. I realised that I needed to share the gift or lose it. Once again, through various factors in my life I came to believe that my ministry was to aid people in healing through a specific tranquil medium – Art. As cousellor I started doing Wellness retreats through the medium of art.
My first exhibition was at age 27 in Richards Bay where I exhibited with my mentor Gerard Kortenbout, a Dutch artist. Although I felt intimidated, I managed to sell a few paintings after the exhibition which gave me a great boost of confidence. I later went solo and exhibited again at the age of 36, with a lot more confidence and again was fortunate to sell all my work.
I realised that I did not enjoy painting from a photograph or a set model which I found restricting and boring, but enjoyed painting from my heart that which I felt and experienced, be it joy, sadness, despair etc. Art became my therapy and my direct communication line with God.
Some of the paintings you are about to see have all been inspired and will be sold only by HIS grace. My art by no means belong to me, so I paint as and when my Father God leads me.
My goal has now become my passion to a self sustainable lifestyle but one that will also bring glory to God through my art, the up-liftment of people in my community and the successful operation of an Artist Retreat. This I am now able to offer at a Retreat in Jacobs Bay on the Western Cape. People who are in need of emotional healing take part in the Wellness Therapy through the use of Art mediums.
MAY EACH ARTWORK TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY OF ENJOYMENT!
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV
