News and Info.
Hello and thank you for visiting my website.
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember
and by 1980 it had evolved into African wildlife portraiture.
Everybody deserves a portrait - right ?!
Now, so many years later and having retired from a
successful career in veterinary nursing, I am really
enjoying my 2nd career in just art.
Why draw African wildlife?
Growing up in South Africa, I developed a lasting
interest for the country's animals. Drawing them allows
me to try to replicate the detail of endlessly different
textures. I do not include a habitat setting, preferring
to keep the focus on the individual being portrayed.
I have had 4 smaller exhibitions held on my framer's
premises in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2011.
The next was in 2020 in a designated gallery space.
2019 I also finally got my own website up and running !!
I do monochrome work using a range of graphite and
carbon pencils. All my work is framed with pale grey mat board,
museum art glass and matte black metal frames 1 cm wide
and 2 cm deep. Originals only - no prints available, price
quote on request.
My next exhibition 'The watchful eye' will be held at
Galleri Greger, Hornsgatan 46, Stockholm, Sweden
from Saturday 29th February to Thursday 5th March
I was hoping to show my new works at a juried exhibition in April,
but due to the Corona restrictions it has been postponed to March
of next year
The date has now been confirmed!
Stockholms Konstsalong vårsalongen
26th March - 2nd April 2022
19th January 2022:
Due to the continuing pandemic situation the exhibition date has
wisely been moved forward to 22nd - 30th October 2022
