Artist Statement

Winter 2014 I was ready to throw things at the grey skies. I needed colour in my life and so I found myself in the dollar store buying dollar store paints and canvas and on a mission started watching a Bob Ross marathon. My first painting with my cheapy supplies following Bobs instructions is still one of my favourite paintings. After that first painting my life changed and I produced more and more colourful paintings and brought so much colour in my life that I forgot about the grey skies. I eagerly watched several artists on Youtube and found my own voice in mix-media. I felt like a kid again playing and getting messy.

That kid that grew up in sunny South Africa eagerly learning various creative skills from her mother. Creativity remained a big part of my life growing up in various ways. I attended various workshops and also did two years of fine arts in University as extra credits.

Even though my creativity followed me through my life as I travelled the world it did not really become a prominent part of my life until that day I was watching Bob paint his happy trees.

Various pieces of my art can be found at For the Love of Art on display and online.
