The urge to create something has always been a strong encouragement. Nature and people fascinates me. Africa is in my blood – it is part of my DNA. All creatures on this continent inspires and uplifts me – especially birds of Southern Africa, and the indigenous Nguni cattle. Africa has such a rich diversity of life and landscapes! A million photos in a day.
Through my work as librarian/teacher at a pre-vocational school, I’ve come to realize that students of an institution like this, have a stigma of not being like other “normal” young adults. Through my portraits of them, I try to show that there is no such thing. The portraits are of human beings interacting with birds and they might as well be from any walk of life – no branded predispositions. Painting flowers is another passion – in/out of focus like the use of depth of field in a photograph without trying to be photo-realistic. With every genre I tackle it is also as if yet another style of painting emerges in terms of execution. I would not like to be tied to one specific style. I mainly paint in oil on canvas and sometimes like to include copper/silver leaf.
