I am living proof that ANYBODY can learn to paint and that you don't need natural talent to be able to paint. Having natural talent, just makes it quicker and easier for you to master the techniques.

I started drawing and painting in 1996 and have never stopped since. In fact I enjoyed it so much I convinced my Dad, Dennis, to let me open my own art teaching studio - dunno what he was thinking ;D but I am glad he did because teaching art has become my life and passion. So even though I don't consider myself to be the best artist out there, and am certainly still learning myself every day, I do enjoy teaching what I do know to my students.

In South Africa I had around 54 students attending my classes every week until I emigrated to New Zealand in 2008, so now I am busy building my studio back up again in one of the most scenic parts of the country.

I mostly paint in Oils, but when I'm in a hurry I paint in acrylics  :-X I also love drawing in pencil and pastel.

You can read more about me and my studio on the site at HERE as well as look at my personal site HERE

Looking forward to making lots of new artist friends on the site  O0
