I have lived in California 20 years raising my children here but originate from South Africa. Over the last 20 years My art has grown to take over my life and it’s purpose. I find that I experience and process my life through my art and the images I seek out. I go with the flow and have given up trying to guide it or create a consistent body of work as that’s the quickest way to kill the flow. I am always surprised to find out what new themes are entering my life and my art, as it always shows up in my art first. At first I seldom understand then as the weeks, but sometimes years pass and the outcome is revealed, I realize, I see it and I am amazed about how that works. I strive to live in the flow and the let the art come through me as it may. My outlook is positive, light filled and joyful as even in the darkest time there is rebirth and new growth. I’ve come to see my work, which is almost all landscapes and fish and flowers, as metaphors for the themes running through my life and so many others at this time. We are all one, in so many ways, and our experiences are shared. My hope is that my work resonates with people and they feel drawn to place it’s positive outlook in their homes to appreciate on a daily basis and that it fills their living spaces with beauty and harmony for years to come.
