Artist Statement

I paint to fill the need to create.
Constantly experimenting with media and subject matter.
The compulsion to recycle pushes me towards mixed media.
For me there isn't a huge urge to comment on anything political, although you will often find a political poster on the back of my painting done on hard board.
Cape Town and it's people provide contradictions and contrasts to work from.
Every day is an inspiration . The need to revel and reflect life's beauty drives me to create.
To share the delight in the seemingly ordinary.
