Artists Profile

I am a Durban based artist born in 1968. I work primarily as a painter but also curate and teach part time. No matter what discipline I am engaged in, my concerns are with furthering my own and others understanding of the visual language of expression and image making in the fine art field.

My work is motivated by the challenge of fusing my emotional intent with visual and technical concerns. At present oil painting is my primary tool, its phenomenally versatile nature offers never-ending possibilities of exploration.

In order to produce works of integrity I have to paint from an emotional point of reference. I am very aware of utilizing imagery I have a profound connection to. My paintings function on an autobiographical level documenting both my internal and external vision. I paint places and people from my everyday life, using the familiar as a direct link to an emotive sense of self.
