About the Book
These drawings were done sporadically over the long stretch from 1974 to 2004. The first two thirds of the drawings were done while I was living in South Africa and the last section was done after I settled in London in 2004.
I especially like the terracota colour and texture of the opaque paint which I feel suits the subject matter well.
I was born in 1939 in Dundee, South Africa. I left South Africa for London in 1961 where I worked in temporary employment and studied art part time, returning to South Africa with a new family in 1966. I lived in Cape town from 1970 until 1980 where I studied Fine Art and Photography and worked as a Printer in Magazine Publishing. I returned permanently to London in 1980 and worked in positions allied to the Printing Industry. I am now retired and concentrate on my art and photography.
