Why did you pick this picture?
I chose the reference because it was an uncommon pose which illustrated a lovely personality, a position even seen in people.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I’d decided to paint a picture as a gift for a friend of mine, Cindie. Her favourite animal is a Panda Bear.
What does this art mean to you?
It is quite precious; a huge amount of thought and care went into deciding on what to paint and searching for reference etc.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am South African and I am a big fan of travelling, the arts, wonderful humans and philanthropy. I’ve made some terrific blunders in my time here on Earth, and I’m looking forward to the new ones yet to come; I believe that those memories will be the best way to entertain myself when I’m old and decrepit!
What more can you tell us about your art?
I’ve adored painting and drawing since as far back as I can remember, and I have always thrived on various creative tasks. The products of my passion are my way of seeing what goes on in my head, and I’ve found it to be a rather fabulous place which I try to visit as often as I can. Painting and drawing are like a form of meditation for me, where I can become completely absorbed in the task and loose time.
