I started art at a very young age. After a rough first year at a regular government school I was lucky enough to be sent to a Waldorf School. Waldorf helped me develop my artists skills and it was there that I first learned music and art. From a young age we painted with watercolors, worled with clay, made sculptures from wood and even did metal work and sewing and knitting. Needless to say, my creative side was more than satisfied.
I unfortunately ended up in a government school as a high school. I still refer to it as a prison. I couldn’t stand it, but it was there that I took art for matric and learned how to paint with acrylics.
Later on while at Rhodes University I came across a black and white charcoal drawing that changed me as an artist forever. It moved something inside and really communicated. I went back to my res that day and drew my first charcoal drawing.
This year (2017) I decided to do my first art exhibition. The medium is charcoal and the rest is a surprise.
