Jardin des Iris, Paris
I was born in 1957, and grew up in Benoni, near Johannesburg.
A painter of figures, city and landscapes, street scenes, boats and harbours, architecture, parks and gardens. I work mainly in oil, but enjoy collage, acrylic and mixed medium too.
Painting for me is all about capturing the effect of sunlight and the juxtaposition of colour and tone. I simply want to stimulate the visual senses and therefore subject matter is merely a tool I use.
My work is figurative (pictoral) and always starts from something to do with mood, light and colour.
I have travelled widely visiting Europe, The British Isles, The Middle East, USA, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Zanzibar and The Caribbean ( Painting vacations in Italy, France, Ukraine and USA )
