My youth was spent climbing mountains, collecting interesting stones, and bits and pieces on farms, this fostered my love for the landscape and the people who dwell in it. My experience participating in the Ultimate Braai Master TV series in 2014 and travelling 7000km s around South Africa over a period of two months has been a major influence on my current perception of the South African landscape and people, its wealth of colour and diversity. As a fine artist the challenge has always been to create a work that is true to my perceptions, may it be a thing of beauty or a message about human interaction/ intrusion in the landscape.” BA
