The Artist

The Artist

In 2012, my dog died and within a month, I felt a need to paint him. It was the first time I picked up a paintbrush. It was in oils, and I did two paintings of Fynn. One when he was just 7 weeks old and one from a photo taken a month before he died.

After that, I painted peoples passed over pets, mostly, for three years, and then I stopped. I am not sure why I stopped. Oils take such a long time to dry and it was a slow process to create a painting. It would sometimes take me 2 weeks to do a portrait. I did many commissions, and I have paintings hanging in many peoples homes. But I was over it.

In October 2019, my niece and myself started art classes where we were learning to work in watercolour. It is a very difficult medium, but after a while, it started to grow on me. It is challenging in so many ways. But I am learning, and I am getting better. In 2023, I started working in coloured pencil. The depth and detail that you can achieve in this medium is so rewarding. I am doing all my pieces in coloured pencil now.

I do pet portraits on commission. For a quote please whatsapp me on +27 82 668 4163 as prices vary depending on what the subject is and fur length.

You can take a look at my gallery to see some of my work. Some of them are for sale either as original work or as limited edition prints. Most of them are completed commissions.
