I was born in Bloemfontein in 1941, where I attended school and university, and qualified as a teacher.
I taught for seventeen years while painting after hours. In 1983 I moved my family to Onrus River, a seaside hamlet on the Cape South coast favored by artists, to pursue a career as professional artist. My painting approach is strongly influenced by the character and of the subject matter I am portraying. I derives my inspiration from Fynbos pickers collecting bouquets of indigenous flowers and fisher folk sorting their catch. These outdoor scenes are depicted in strong sunlit colors - giving expression to the African sunlight and the buzz of activity.
I work mainly in oils, and sometimes use pastels over the oils in mixed media on paper to effectively create a softer more subtle finish when painting interior scenes. Paintings using this technique are some of favourite works, portraying my wife and daughter - my former two favorite models, busy reading, sewing or simply relaxing.
I participated in numerous group shows, as well as a number of solo exhibitions since 1956.
Teacher's degree Bloemfontein
