Biography
From a young age I was fascinated by drawing. My interest in art became more evident in high school and went on studying a BA Fine Arts degree at the University of Pretoria. After completing my degree in 2009, I decided full time artist as my profession. I have been exhibiting my work at Art d’Afrique gallery in Hartbeespoort as well as Art Avenue in East Rand Mall. Elsabe Olkers advertise and market my work and I also completed numerous compositions for clients. 2013 was the highlight in my career when I showcased my work at my first solo exhibition.
My art consist between a wide interest in subject matter, from the portrayal of landscapes, portraiture, still life, wildlife and cattle. I find oil paint as my preferable medium to work with and believe it brings the best out of my painting style. When painting, I draw inspiration from God’s creation and feel through every natural form closer to Him. I believe that God uses me through paint and a brush to make a difference. I am always fascinated by the uprising colors when exploring the subject; therefore I will accent those colors in my paintings. I find it important to create aesthetically warm and joyful artworks and the best way to capture these emotions, is through the use of intense, bright colors. In a way my work reflects inspiration from Fauvism, Expressionism and Impressionism, but I consider myself more as a realist.

It pleases me to share my knowledge in art with others and therefore I find it essential to help develop a person that share the same passion for art as I do.
