For me, they symbolize so much, but, above all, adaptability and transformation.

Winds of change

When the time of your life is right your migration will begin

My paintings hatch… bit by bit, starting as a little vague idea in my head, sometimes I walk with the possibility of an image for days, weeks, even months before it gets to a point of breaking through, even then, I usually do not know precisely where the image will end up once I put […]

My thought process and journey to a painting

Daisy in a Delft bowl

Creating a painting, the route I take: I want to share a peek into my head as I create a painting. I start by staring at the blank canvas on my easel, trying to connect to it, trying to feel it… At this stage, I want either silence, but mostly rather loud music, the choice […]

Secrets Revealed: Images Of Hands In My Art

It is about making a difference...

Hands:  I cannot do this blog post about hands, without combining it with motivational quotes as each of my hand’s paintings are very specific in conveying a message. Quotes can express in words, what you feel in your heart. I try to capture a feeling in my hand’s paintings of compassion, understanding, giving, support, and […]

Broken open

     One rainy day, almost two years ago, I was browsing antique shops in Mossel Bay. I used to live there, my studio was in the Searles Manor building (a historic sandstone building, build in 1902) overlooking the harbor. Each time I sold an artwork, I went on a “treasure hunt”, rewarding myself with […]
