Willie Strydom's interest in art started at a very young age. His family used to stop at Joubert Park in Johannesburg when there was an art exhibition. There, Willie identified artist Gerrit Roon as one of his favourite artists.

For my next painting, I will work on a cottage from a photo where the sky was a light orangy colour.
