Shepherds were always Fun to look at as a Child.
I was born in the southern part of Germany as the youngest of 9 children and had the opportunity to watch my Father creating many oil paintings in landscape, portraits, seascapes and any other subject's thinkable. Many were sold during and after the war to France, America and Germany. At about 12 years old I tried my first oil painting and at 20 years old I was able to do commission work. After serving 2 years in the German Army I graduated at the Textile Technology-School in Reutlingen Germany as a Weaving Master and immigrated to South Africa in 1971. After working for several Companies I was able to start my own Weaving and operated for 8 Years until Retirement.
About 5 one men and 2 team exhibitions in germany
Gratuated at Textile Technology-School Reutlingen in Germany.I
