Fashion Design at the Cape Technicon in Cape Town, South Africa
Diploma of Art Appreciation - The Art Institute
I portray deep emotion, whether the situation in my country, people's faces or with my nudes. I believe art should be expressive. After all William Burroughs said : “Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact. ”
I mainly work in oils, but with my nude range, I have added acrylic texture paste to my paintings
Originally a Fashion Designer, I extended my passion for art into painting. I have taken part in various exhibitions in USA, UK, Italy, France, Germany, China and India, the Florence Biennale 2011 and SIEL de Paris 2012, being highlights. In 2015, my love for the art industry lead me to do a course in Art Appreciation. Apart from being an artist, I am also the owner of the Kunstehuijs Art Gallery in Swellendam, South Africa, where I represent the work of some of South Africa’s prominent artists.
