About "Lion couple"
Inspired by my love for the African wildlife,doing this calmes me down and put me in a state of mind where I'm free of all the dayly concerns
Japie is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
NOW WHAT BETTER INSPIRATION THAN A LOVELY LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER. I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO CHOOSE HER NAME AND JEWEL WERE MY CHOICE. So here she is with me, only 3 weeks old. I started with pencil sketches as a child to calm me down as I had epilepsy and that worked for me, as I grew older the love for art stuck with me and I continue to use different mediums like watercolor and pastel. However living in a small place where art where not popular and things like oil paint where not easily found, this forced me to start carving my pictures and do the normal oil painting over that giving it a 3D look. This form became popular for me and I stuck to it.
Done a couple of small exhibitions and made a few local newspapers like "Witbank Observer" and "Independent Newspaper" and saw one of my paintings on TV "SABC 2" for the first time.
Self trained with the help from above
