Saskia watched her Mother and brother create beautiful paintings while she was growing up. After her Mom passed, she found the courage to pickup a paint brush and started with painting pets.
A prolific painter, she was turning out several canvases each weekend. Soon friends and co workers asked her to make a personality pet portrait of their beloved creatures. Practising painting the happy faces of pets, turned into a passion. Painting is my meditative place. Getting lost in the image and turning a blank canvas into something that seems to come to life, gives me great joy.
While I still paint many pet faces with zest, I have ventured into landscapes, people and flowers. I know that I will be enjoying this hobby until the end of my days.
