I seek to reflect
to return to the garden
by painting what I see
shaped through time
I want to honour
I want to point to the truth, beauty and goodness
in the unfolding story
of God’s creation
I like the immediacy of painting on site

My major project for 2022 was 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. The river trickles down past Diepgat Cave, building 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.
