Hi all...

I live in Limpopo Province in the bushveld and have been painting for about 6 years now - although my hours spent in front of the easel could possibly only fit 1 year! I am self taught other than art for 3 years at high school. I attended one glorious art course weekend about 6 years ago where I found that I really did enjoy this pastime. For me it is not about selling the paintings (although a painting sold is a unique thrill:) - but rather discovering what techniques suit me, what medium I like best, combining everything and finding my own style. I love experimenting - although I am somewhat reticent when it comes to the totally unknown. Scared of failure? Or success? I have yet to discover which. Maybe just a little shy to try:)

I have been fortunate to sell a few paintings - you can see them on

There is so much to learn and it will take the rest of my life to discover and enjoy all this wonderful thing called art can offer. I happily undertake that journey and am here to get as much advice as possible, and to share this journey of creativity.

:bigwelcome: to the site Marloe. Had a look at your paintings - very nice. Even better seeing all the SOLD signs next to them. Looking forward to chatting with you here and learning with you.

 :welcome: to the Forum Marloe. Very interested to read that you combine your art with singing. How about posting a video with a song :D
