I seek to reflect
our yearning
to return
to the garden

by painting
what I see

Each crag
each tree
each boulder
shaped through time

Each creature
each person
created unique

I want to honour
the detail
in watercolour

I want to point to
the truth, beauty
and goodness
in the unfolding story
of God’s creation

Lourens River

In 2022 I painted a set of watercolours to celebrate the Lourens River.
Our river rises on the watershed in the  where Eerste River, Berg River and Riviersonderend flow off in different directions.  What starts as a trickle past Diepgat Cave, builds from tributaries down the kloof to flow through farms, parks and our town.  Pollution and vagrancy make the river less desirable in the lower stretches but still is a delightful sight as it flows over the beach in Strand into False Bay.

These watercolours will form the heart of an exhibition to be held early in 2023.

I also work on commission
