I did not study Fine Art, but rather BSc Human Science at Stellenbosch University, and completed my Honors degree in Family Psychology. From the youngest age, I wanted to be an artist & most of my interest lay with the arts. Never having been in an art class, I had to teach myself through reproducing what I see on paper or canvas, learning to use mediums & correctly spotting colours & capturing light.
Watercolour became the medium that chose me in some sense. We understand each other by now & have learnt to work with its delicately feminine, mind-of-its-own fluidity. I love the medium, in all its free form. Other mediums are so much fun to explore as well, & I do enjoy learning new skills with each.
