I am a former Bank employee - resident in Port Elizabeth , South Africa , who has had a life- long interest in art (drawing and painting) starting at the tender age of 9 , when I was a winner in the 4th Annual Santam Competition for Youth Art . My artistic talents were never pursued to their full potential as I commenced a career in the finance industry after completing my schooling.
In this regard, in early 2008 I was inspired to take up water colour painting and in 2009 I left the banking world and have been painting on a full time basis ever since. I paint from home and aim to produce at least one new work each month , and to date have completed over 240 watercolour paintings. I paint entirely in watercolour and gouache .
I also have an interest in photography and prefer to do all my paintings using my own photographs as the source of reference . My paintings cover a diverse range of subjects, however, I have a preference for landscapes, seascapes and buildings . .
There are paintings of mine hanging in private homes in
the United States of America, Ireland , England , Australia, Thailand and South Africa.
