Exploring a sense of place

Buy ArtBe Inspired

HELLO

Welcome to my creative world of landscapes and flowers. I paint in oil or acrylic on paper, canvas and wood. I also like to draw in my sketchbook and be outside.

Get a glimpse into the visual splendour of the Overberg region in South Africa through my eyes, pencil and paintbrush. In the little village of Stanford we look out on mountains, the Klein Rivier and a village full of trees and gardens. Join me as I explore the landscapes and plants of a diverse and scenic area.

ABOUT

I’m inspired by nature and a sense of place, exploring my environment in paint and pencil.

I have a strong desire to share the essential “gasp”-like feeling of immersing myself in the landscape and experiencing the sense of place in a visual way.

I intend by my expression of what I see and feel in the place I am in, to bring the energy of beautiful places to those who resonate with what they see and feel in my work.

I live in Stanford, a small historical village in the Overberg region of South Africa. In my art, I explore the landscape and it’s plants, discovering its essence and conveying that, to the best of my ability, to the viewer.
