From Principal to Artist
I was born and bred in the lovely town of Ceres. I went to study Education at Wellington Training College and then started teaching. Although I had no formal art training, I had a love for art but this only started to flourish when I went back to the University of Stellenbosch to do my degree in Education.
After finishing B.Ed I returned to formal education and again my art was put on hold. In 1995 I moved to the Eastern Cape where I was principal for 17 years. In this time I also did my Masters degree at the University of the Orange Free State. As principal with an enormous volume of administrative work, my wife and I started investing in other artists. Among their collection are works by Bettie Cilliers Barnard, Claerhout, Kobus kotze, Hanlie Kotze, Derick van Rensburg, Isabel le Roux, Kobus Louw Maria carla Bosch and Dale Elliot.
December 2011, I retired from teaching and moved to the Strand. That is when my life as a painter started.
