Artist Statement

My art is a symbolic language of an abstract thought. I use patterns, lines, symbols and colour to find a contemporary South African expression. I see myself as part of the timeless tradition of celebrating the human godliness from the first rock painting, to the present time and beyond. I am interested in using art as another element of alchemy, where through it you can evoke and even heal certain emotions.
