My Art

A collection of art by artists I love and admire and have some personal connection with. They might be from my hometown, went to school with me or had some influence in my life. I've always been the closet artist who has never quite blossomed, but great art has always taken a special place in my life. I greatly admire people with talent who has the self-discipline and determination to put in the work and become a success.

Song of the Wind by Shelley Adams. My first awakenings in art (actually 'making art') was as a 'once-a-week' learner-artist at Shelley's home in Hermanus. It was many hours spent in a happy place that I'll never forget.

I met Jesus Fuertes some years ago while working on an exhibition that he was planning for Cape Town, which sadly never materialised. We spent countless hours chatting and he drew me several pen drawings – mostly on napkins and hotel menus. He even did a full scale, signed pen drawing on the back of one of my own paintings that I will cherish forever. I was sad to hear that he passed away a few years ago in 2006. He was a celebrated cubist painter, mentored by Salvador Dalí and Pablo…
