Landscapes and the places I have been have always held deep significance for me. In the painting of these spaces I love, I find that my work is a form of meditation and definitely an expression of gratitude.
I often celebrate people who have been integral in my life through the medium of landscapes. By this I mean that the feelings and expressions that they evoke in me are translated to colour.
I have been painting in oils for 2 dedicated years now, finding my inspiration in predominantly South African landscapes. I find it hard to paint places that I have never been, never breathed. Often when I revisit a place on canvas, it is to walk there again in my spirit and once again revisit the thoughts that found me there.
I am really glad that you are reading this blog now. Thank you for wandering into my virtual studio.
