About Me

I am a South African Artist living in Portugal

My style of painting is varied as I find it impossible to stick to one style for very long. I have a few methods of using paint and continue to learn and grow (I hope!) with each painting. I paint in Acrylic and use sponges, large brushes, sometimes drips and splashes - especially on Abstracts which I LOVE painting. 

Portraits are a fascination of mine and I choose to paint faces a lot. Also Ballet as I have always been fascinated by the grace, strength and beauty of Ballet dancers. They are just amazing.

Then, of course, I do commissions. I can't lie and say I always enjoy doing them - unless I am given free rein. Then they are a pleasure. 

I recently held an exhibition at Albuquerque Lima Gallery in Coimbra and was delighted at the positive response I received at this, my first exposure to the European art scene.
