REDUCED: All Indian-ink-and-wash paintings of Namibia
I am a specialist in prescribed burning, wildland fire management and other fire-related subjects, and have been researching these fields in natural as well as in man-made ecosystems (such as industrial man-made timber plantations)in Africa and in Europe (Med. countries).I had no formal art training, but painted my whole life since I was 11 years old (58 years to date). Have traveled intensively in most continents, which also inspired my paintings - with particular reference to the beautiful landscapes of South Africa and Namibia, as well as Western Europe. I visited overseas countries on numerous occasions, and also traveled far and wide to every corner of Southern Africa, for work and on holidays, adding to my painting ideas and potential. Other interests: Traveling (wrote one non-fiction book on travel), birding (wrote 2 birding books), model boat building and my research work! When painting, I express myself in my own personal (unique) way, as I see a landscape. In this way I will always attempt to create the natural beauty of our natural world in my way, with all its amazing creations and colors, as seen through my eyes.
