“Being an artist is being the energy that flows the paint”
For over 24 years I have been developing my own painterly language through portraiture and atmospheric scapes.
Imperfect, I don’t seek realism, but rather a catalyst that will begin a dialogue between artist, painting and viewer.
My artworks are a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, nationality and a journey with my own physicality and spirituality.
Influenced by the Impressionist movement, I grasp at the momentary, sensory feelings of the portrait or scape I am painting. Painting that fleeting gesture, too beautiful to capture but irresistible. Just out of reach. My paintings are attempts at creating an illusion between reality and my chaotic headspace.
I am also, the owner and curator of The Gallery, situated in The Studios at the Ballito Lifestyle Centre.
