Many a time, the little corner where I paint has been like a citadel, a place where I can escape & get lost in painting. There’s something about the painting process, something to do with the intense concentration & the quiet creativity involved, that gives an artist a sense of inner peace, for the most part anyway! I started painting in High school, mostly portraits & always with acrylics. Much later in life, I thought I’d try my hand oils. Painting in oils can be tricky, & at times extremely frustrating, but despite that - or maybe because of it - it can be incredibly rewarding too. Having grown up on the North Coast of South Africa (at that time, a wild, untamed coast line), & as part of a family who enjoyed safaris at every opportunity, it seemed only natural to change subject matter from portraits to wildlife. However, more & more I’m finding fresh inspiration from all around. Here in England, the first signs of spring can be seen in the streets, with the appearance of pink, cherry blossoms above, & yellow daffodils below. All of which makes me want to paint flowers! Life as an artist is wonderful. It’s a never-ending process of discovery. There is something new to be learned with every artwork, & I look forward to exploring it all.

As stated previously as I didn't read it properly, this painting is just gorgeous. The colour and detail are lovely and I knew when I saw it it would have to have it. It was better in real life, couldn't believe it. The artist is amazing and I'll continue to follow her work.Submitted by Angela West 06/01/2017
My painting is absolutely stunning. I loved it when I saw it for sale and I knew I just had to have it and it's even better in real life. The colours, the detail, just gorgeous. I had no problems with the purchase, no problems with messaging the artist and delivery was spot on.
