I am a "Scatterling of Africa”. Forever inspired by my birthplace South Africa, I have found 'home' in many places on five different continents. After many years in Australia, I am for now living with my family in Hong Kong.
Inspired by the ancient Chinese belief in the power of spontaneity, my art is devoted to its elusiveness. Like love, happiness, empathy and pleasure, creativity cannot be forced, it needs to happen spontaneously. The beauty of watercolour is in its fluidity, and by embracing the unexpected, magical marks can happen. My technique involves unique surfaces and a constant flow of water where layers of colour are applied and then washed away again. When I let go and work intuitively my art leads me to be curious, push boundaries, reflect, trust, dream and escape from everyday life so I might capture its poetry.
