About the Artist
After graduating with a Fine Arts degree from the University of Pretoria, I found myself landing my dream job at the SABC, where I breathed life into sets and hand puppets. You might even recognise some of the famous Afrikaans characters I worked on, such as Mannemerak, Sarel Seemonster, Droendraak en die Kabouters, as I played an integral part in the beloved Liewe Heksie team.
However, my artistic path eventually led me to another adventure – teaching. With my boundless creativity, I ventured into various high schools in the Bellville and Durbanville areas, sharing my expertise in pottery and visual arts. Today, while I continue to teach art to adults and provide one-on-one guidance to scholars, my heart beats as a full-time artist.
My preferred mediums are oil painting and black ballpoint pen drawing. The real magic happens when I delve into mixed media, combining all my loves, including oil, pen, charcoal, and gold leaf. Art has always danced gracefully through my life, and I’ve thrived by painting, selling my work in Western Cape Galleries, participating in exhibitions, and taking on commissioned projects. Some of my creations have found their way to distant lands like London, New Zealand, and Ghana.
Nature is my muse, and I effortlessly capture its essence through my brushstrokes. My works often bear symbolic elements, adding layers of meaning and intrigue. Yet, I also find inspiration in my own travels, painting captivating scenes that transport viewers to far-off destinations. My recent masterpiece, “Selfie Gone Wrong,” earned me a coveted spot among the prestigious Vuleka Art Exhibition finalists, a national art competition. Inspired by my unforgettable trip to Portugal, this painting encapsulates my ability to infuse my art with both storytelling and a touch of wit.
