FROM “DIE DUIF “ ART CENTRE
My favourite quote is from Sarah Brightman
“You do have to be fairly selfish when you have a gift. You cannot afford to let too many outside things get in the way.”
I learn every day and have realised that you are never to young or to old to learn. My love for at began at “Die Duif” Art Centre when I was only thirteen years old. Since then I have never regretted taking art classes. Art formed me to who I am today and I am pretty sure it will have an impact on my future.
Having such a good competent teacher also helped me to make fast progress and study various subjects. Art is’nt that easy and you do reach days where one does not feel inspired or reaches the so called “artist block”when you have absolutely no inspration.
My favourite medium is oils but I do like drawing with pencils and I prefer to paint objects like ships and buildings but I do like doing portraits as well. I have copied various works from the old master Monet I learn something new with every painting that I copy of him. Art is my life and I don’t ever want to stop.
