Miniature paintings

Why miniature paintings? If you are unsure about what teacher’s gifts or Christmas presents to get, why not commission some custom miniature paintings for only R250 each?

We miss you, Tata (Mandela)

We miss you, Tata (Mandela)

I originally created “We miss you, Tata” for Mandela month. During this process, I was overcome with emotion for the lost father of our rainbow nation and for the state our government is in. Sometimes I feel like our current leader is trying to mock the legacy Madiba left behind. I cried because all of…

Keira

I painted this portrait of my beautiful daughter, Keira, so that I may have a lasting memory of her as she is now. A toddler. A girl. A chatterbox. Stubborn. Playful. Brutally honest.  Kind. Loving. Real. Words can not express the love I have for this little girl, and also how frustrating it can be to…
