I am a self taught South African Artist. I admire good art and my favorite subject is "YESTERYEAR." I enjoy the classics, the cars, trucks and old buildings which are fast disappearing and in my art I would like to restore these past images in your mind, a heritage for our children, something for you to hang in your home with fond memories.
