What music are you currently listening to and why?
The radio, mostly.  I love radio as a medium, especially student run stations as they have almost no advertising, the DJs are often fresh and unpretentious and the music new and interesting.

Which living artists do you most admire and why?
There are many,( I admire almost all artists for their commitment) but I do have favourites. John Meyer,  Albert Redelinghuys and H. Craig Hannah because they paint and draw so beautifully.

Which deceased artist do you most admire and why?
Johannes Vermeer, Carel Fabritius, Edouard Manet, Andrew Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, again for the beauty of their technique.

Which exhibition that you have visited made the greatest impact on you and why?
I very much enjoyed an exhibition by Wim Botha in the  National Gallery. It was mostly sculpture and he managed to turn accepted views on their head in such a clever way and with so much grace and skill without allowing the work to depend on its ironic meaning.

What is the question you get asked most frequently about your work and how do you answer it?
’What is your favourite subject matter?’ It’s difficult to answer because it changes all the time. At the moment I am intrigued by social interaction and the effects of social interaction between people.

What/ who inspired you to be an artist ?
I think perhaps my mother, who admired ever single doodle I ever made and thought I was an artist long before I actually was one.

Can you tell us about where you make your art and what if any, the significance this location has.
I have a studio in my house on the farm and one in town so that I can spend more time painting and less on the road!

What do you like most about being an artist?
The act of putting paint onto canvas, of creating something.

What is your greatest achievement as an artist to date?
I think it has to be that I am still inspired to paint, after so many hours spent doing it. There is always something waiting to be painted.
