Musings from the Cape

A collection of paintings inspired by life and living in the Western Cape. Surrounded by the sea and the mountains it is not difficult to encounter the beauty of nature, however it is always how we choose to respond that makes these moments enduring and significant or simply transient. My paintings explore not only the visual aspects of what I see, but also the sensations experienced and my own response to the world around me. Each painting, made up of layers of colour and texture reveal my sense of wonder at creation in all its magnificent splendour. I am fascinated by the magnitude and vastness as well as the perfection in tiny details, the macro and micro perspectives, the layers to our lives.
