About "A Gift for You"
This picture tells a story. He has told her that he has a gift for her and her face has lit up with joy. One can see the smile on his face even though his face is turned away. It is such a pleasure to capture and to be able to paint a special moment in time. A painting to last forever.
I am inspired by the wonderful works of the great masters. The amazing colours in nature and the human figure. Art is a wonderful journey, always striving but never reaching the final goal, we never stop learning. As far back as I can remember I have been drawing and painting. After qualifying as a dress designer at the Natal Technical College, I ran my own designing business for many years, but my love of art took over and I began at the Art Foundation in Johannesburg. My favourite subject is the Human figure, although I do paint still life, landscape and abstract. I try to capture the mood of the scene and the expressions on peoples faces. Every face tells a story. I have paintings in private collections in South Africa, Australia, Canada, America, and in the Consulate General's office in Peurto Rico.
Many group exhibitions.
Diploma in Dress Design, 2 years study at the Art Foundation.
