About

I love colour and I love to express my feelings on canvas.My passion is Art. I work in various mediums and love to add texture particularly when working with oil paints. Oils have such a buttery texture and the colours remain bold and crisp in the finished art work.
Once the idea and image is locked in my mind, equipped with my paint brush, there is no stopping me until I have completed my ideas on canvas.

I am inspired by colour, shapes and movement. I love using bright colours to express what I feel, what moves me, what excites me.My inspirations come from everyday life , an assortment of animals, nature, people and places .
Mainly self taught , my passion led me to formal studies. I obtained Visual arts certificate in the early eighties.
I like experimenting with oils,acrylics,pastels and inks to create different styles and textures.
I have been very fortunate to have won several first prize awards and have sold many cherished pieces.I am still on my journey and are ever evolving.

Welcome to my world. I hope you enjoy my Art !!!!I
