My Story

Iā€™m a multi-disciplined artist who is inspired by the romance and essence of farm life, with a particular passion towards the animals that roam our farm in Creighton, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.  I paint in either watercolour or acrylic paint depending on what the subject calls for. My hope and aim is to tell a story about all that I love here on our dairy farm & convey the characters of the various creatures & critters that inhabit the farm with us.

My passion for art began a very long time ago and as a child I was constantly creating. I completed a BA degree in Art History & Psychology at Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape. Following that I found myself in the advertising world for a few years before moving to the farm where I picked up my paintbrush in earnest again!

I live and paint on the farm with my husband, three children, five dogs, one cat & eight hundred cows. I do hope you enjoy browsing my work.

Love,

Leigh
