One of my biggest goals this year is to become an internationally recognised oil painting artist, despite the global shutdown we are currently experiencing.

I recently spent some time in Italy where I attended some amazing workshops alongside the extremely talented watercolour artist, Marcos Beccari.
During the workshop, I learned so many new things which encouraged me to expand my artistic horizons by moving away from my signature style.

As a South African artist living in Stellenbosch, I have always found my inspiration from the surrounding landscapes as well as the abundant and colourful heritage of this country.
