Job Title: Artist, illustrator, art teacher, translator
Description: I work mostly in oils, and love sculpting. My trademark is variety. I paint subjects ranging from realistic landscapes, still lives, seascapes and portraits to dreamscapes and imaginary scenes. Portraits are done in oils, pastels, pencil or charcoal, from life or from photographs; wildlife from photographs in conjunction with fellow-artist and photographer Jackie During. Sculpture includes ceramics, papier maché and works in relief comprising ceramics, found materials, plastic, hardware and natural materials.
Some paintings are done from reference material, others just happen. The latter are never consciously conceived. Some works of art just announce themselves; they have a life of their own and even choose their own frames. This process makes art an adventure for me.
I work from home at Krakeel River in the Langkloof as an artist, art teacher, language practitioner, cartoonist and book illustrator.
