I have loved drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and thanks to my most supportive family, I have been able to do so since my early years. I travel a great deal as I am a strong believer in drawing from life. I sketch everywhere I go in ink and water colour. These sketches are then “transformed” into my oil paintings - the composition is like positive and negative shapes and the overall composition, although challenging, is the key to a successful study. I graduated at Rhodes University in 1959 and did post graduate studies in London for a year. My oil paints are applied with a palette or painting knife to rough pre-primed canvas I literally sculpt with my palette knife which achieves exciting textures and effects.
