Joanna particularly enjoys painting and drawing animals
approached me with the idea as his father had been on the ship. I don't limit myself as an artist and like to work in several mediums and on a wide range of subjects. My aim at this moment is simply to get more of my art out there to build my reputation and hopefully I will reach the point where I can forge a career as a full-time artist.
HAOS Art Trail I'm involved with the HAOS Art Trail this July, which I'm very excited about. I am joining up with two other artists, Irma and Andre Westerdijk, so I hope that by having a sculptor, painter and upcycling artist in one location, we will attract quite a few members of the public. As well as selling my art, I produce prints and greetings cards, as some people only have a small amount to spend. Art needs to be accessible and one of the key aims is to cater for everyone. If youâ€™re producing work that nobody can enjoy because it's too expensive, then what's the point?
