I live and work from my studio at home in Durban. Being inspired by contrasts in colour and light and shade,my work is bright and colourful.
I find my paintings change constantly as I play with new ideas and the spectrum of colour we are so fortunate to see.
Of late my work is centering around figures, representing them in a more abstract form. I strive constantly to capture the essence of the subject rather than every realistic minute detail.
I love this style as it is produced by passion and emotion...the paint and the brush directing the humble artist!
Ran my own working studio "ARTBEAT STUDIO on Steel" and later "Signature Art" - a small exciting Gallery
I now paint fulltime and exhibit all over South Africa.
