Body of work

My Art journey started, when I was a child, I have always loved to use my hands and put my thoughts and ideas into visual form. My self portrait, my first ever oils painting, was kept by the Wits University / JCE Arts department in 1991, and I was when the opportunity presented itself, fortunate in being able to retrieve it back from them. I have always loved it’s spontaneity, and deep emotional use of colour! Its a painting, that I cherish because I  enjoyed every brushstroke: ‘painting for the sake of painting!’
