About "Mischievous Boy"
I loved his naughty look, I thought what a lovely picture to portray - and it came out very nice indeed! The fact that he peeked out from under his grandma's blanket, with his little hand ready to duck back again, and his little round tummy, it caught my attention immediately. He needs to be framed and looked at often!
I've been drawing since I was quite young and people encouraged me to go on, which was very good, because young children tend to stop drawing at about 10 years of age. So, after school I did stop drawing/painting and only started again by going for lessons privately a long time afterwards, and eventually ended up going to Ruth Prowse School of Art for refreshment. I went on doing fabric painting professionally and sold quite a few African stuff to overseas buyers through a shop. A few years ago started with oils and eventually tried acrylics, now I do not want to go back to oils, I like painting with acrylics so much. I love faces. I like to paint people too. I also really love colours and to paint realistically. Abstract art, unless it evokes an emotion in me with the use of colour, I don't understand fully - I just like it when any painting 'speaks' to you. So, I guess, realistic art in most forms appeals to me, especially accompanied by bright, vibrant colours - I just love it when a painting 'jumps' out at you!
Exhibited at Hogsback "Christmas in July" festival recently and sold some paintings there.
Matriculated, and studied (later) at Ruth Prowse School of Art.
