About the artist:
I am an emerging South African fine/figurative artist. I studied Fine art at Port Elizabeth Technicon and majored in Stained glass.I graduated with distinction in 1998. I also received a good grounding in drawing, printmaking, sculpture, painting and art history.
My use of subject matter ranges from fantasy through erotic to abstract works. During the year following my graduation, I experimented extensively with hot glass techniques such as slumping and fusing; also incorporated many organic materials, creating unusual recycled type of works like “Collapsed Beer bottle becomes an ashtray".
I now do unique and evocative figurative paintings/mixed media/chalk pastel works. Some of these are exhibited for sale locally .I try to use my mediums in such a way as to create a unique mood and tone for each figure or portrait; incorporating my love of sensual nature, Africa and the nude human figure and psyche in the use of earthy colors, sensitive lines and intuitive textures. The word Afro-Saxon could be used to describe my artistic heritage and influence, but my real inspiration comes from deep inside my own tangled sub-consious.
I am also currently working on my first children’s book ‘Keetha the Penguin’ and hope to do more book illustration
I have done more free-lance illustration work recently, and am experimenting with cartoon strips.
Anyone who would like to know more about my work or is interested in enquiring about commissions should contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
