A butterfly is the most beautiful creature that spreads joy whenever it is regarded. It is also alluring and heartwarming to see them roam around so gracefully. The life of a butterfly symbolizes a lot of things.

It is amazing how a tiny creature can mean so much spiritually and personally. People often wonder what does it mean when a butterfly lands on you? The answer is never very simple. A butterfly symbolizes rebirth. It is firstborn as a caterpillar and then it goes back to cocoon only to come out as a beautiful, different coloured, flying butterfly. It goes through a complete metamorphosis. The life journey of a butterfly teaches us so many lessons if we just look closely and pay enough attention. Like the death and resurrection of Jesus, believers in Christ, die to sin and self and are born-again as new creatures. Washed clean by the precious blood of our Lord and Saviour and spiritually alive to commune with God our father.


Touch Series

After a long season of producing portraits in oils, I returned for a while to the humble pencil. The ‘Touch’ exhibition, which opened at the Studio Gallery Kalk Bay on Friday June 14th 2013 and ran until July 3rd, was the result of that experience – a true celebration of the beauty and expressiveness of the human hand.

Several months before this show, a group of us artists got together in the studio to work on life drawings, and for me, hands are one of the most difficult parts of the human body to draw, so I decided to master this challenge by producing one hundred detailed drawings. Friends, family and even casual acquaintances, modeled their hands for me and in each drawing I tried to capture the unique character of each individual.

A great deal could be learned about a person just by observing their hands. For example, the slight hand gestures of a person in love, or the anxious mannerisms of the addicted smoker clutching his last cigarette, or the telltale scars and callouses which belong to a hard working laborer. The hands are young and old, lined and smooth and endlessly expressive and tell a hundred stories which are all captured in my hyper-realistic style.
