Introducing "Hang On Tight," a captivating painting that captures a moment of serene resilience in the heart of nature. In this enchanting scene, a small black bird perches delicately on a wild hedge, its feathers ruffled by the gentle breeze. The cloudy sky in the background adds a touch of drama, creating a poetic backdrop for this intimate encounter with the avian world.


The small black bird becomes the focal point of the canvas, its presence evoking a sense of quiet strength and tenacity. You can almost feel the texture of its sleek feathers and the subtle rustle of leaves as it clings to the hedge, embracing the natural ebb and flow of the environment. The artist skillfully captures the delicate balance between fragility and resilience, freezing this fleeting moment in time.


Behind the bird, a cloudy sky sets the mood for the scene, casting a soft and diffused light that adds depth to the composition. The interplay of grays and whites in the sky creates a subtle contrast, emphasizing the bird's silhouette against the backdrop of nature's ever-changing canvas.


"Hang On Tight" is not just a painting; it's a poetic exploration of the relationship between the untamed and the delicate. It invites you to appreciate the beauty in simplicity and find solace in the small moments of nature's embrace. Bring a sense of tranquility and contemplation into your space with this evocative artwork, where the small black bird reminds us all to hang on tight amid life's gentle currents.

    Immersed in a lifelong love affair with art, I embarked on my artistic journey by studying at the Port Elizabeth Technicon (now NMMMU) in 1986. Nature, particularly the serene company of birds, has always been an integral part of my upbringing, fostering a profound connection to tranquil spaces where our souls find resonance.


    As a wife and mother to two inspiring daughters, my artistic inspiration is deeply rooted in the beauty of family life. The theme of birds in my recent work emerged during a pivotal period when I sought solace and tranquility. It was to the avian world that my heart turned, finding respite in bird photography, whether by the seaside or amidst inland landscapes. Birds, with their constant presence, serve as a welcome distraction from the hustle of city life, offering a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday existence.


    In the quietude of my creative process, I rarely accompany my painting sessions with music; instead, I find solace in the harmonious symphony of birdsong enveloping our home. My artworks have found homes in collections across the globe, from Dubai and Mallorca to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, Scotland, and various galleries in Cape Town.


    Preferring the tranquility of online platforms and private appointments, I navigate the art world as a bit of an introvert. My sincere aspiration is for my art to extend the same sense of peace and joy that I experience during the creative process into the homes of those who appreciate it. While my pieces exude a quiet aesthetic, a careful observer may discern the soft chirping of my feathered muses and the subtle fluttering of wings.
