Art Résumé

Although I have done art for many reasons two stands out. Firstly, my dad literally walked me over to the art department at the University of the Orange Freestate in South Africa to get tested before they accepted me into the art program. He died when I was 21 and to show thanks to him I will keep on making art until I can not anymore. He was a farmer and gave me a childhood on a farm and the love for nature and animals has always been strong in me. Secondly, my husband was diagnosed with skin cancer a couple of years ago and they had to cut all the cancer out. He always enjoys seeing me paint or draw and for him I will keep on doing it. He knows that as long as we create there is hope.
