This painting represents man's obsession to believe in & ensure life after death. The mummy on the right is Ramesses II, and on the left Ramesses V, of the Nineteenth & Twentieth Egyptian Dynasties. A guiding matriarchal figure separates the kings.
Painted with oils on canvas, with applied gold leaf in the background.
I would hope that the viewer perceives the honor & dignity portrayed in the portraits, so elusive to attain in life.

As an accomplished artist with over five decades of experience, I have developed a unique and captivating style that has drawn the attention of art enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. My studio is based in the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa, where I create masterful works of art primarily using oils on canvas.
My passion for art started in 1969, and I have since built a successful career as a professional artist, with a focus on wildlife, portraits, and landscapes. While my work is realistic and representative in nature, I am not limited to any specific style or subject matter, and I often explore new techniques and ideas to keep my art fresh and exciting. I paint primarily in oils on linen canvas.
My art is deeply rooted in my life experiences, and I hope that my paintings inspire and connect with others on a personal level. As an artist, I believe that my work is not complete until it resonates with the viewer and evokes an emotional response with a direct connection to their own life experience.
In addition to being inspired by the old masters, I draw inspiration from contemporary artists like John Singer Sargent, Bo Bartlett, Andrew Wyeth, Odd Nerdrum, Knut-Andre Vikshaland, Vincent Desiderio, and Antonio Lopez Garcia.
Whether you are a seasoned collector or a new art enthusiast, I invite you to experience the beauty and passion of my art and join me on this incredible journey.
My work is represented internationally by SAATCHI ART, by ARTOUI & ARTMO galleries in Germany, and by OCCHI CONTEMPORARY ART in London & New York,
