“Colour is an important element in my art and the feeling and mood that different hues and shades can convey and create.” – Jalaun Schultz
I am a self-taught artist that resides in Somerset West. Some of my earliest memories are of me drawing – creating has always been my passion. However, it took o few years to get back to that desired place.
After obtaining a qualification in law and spending a few years working – I finally had the time to breathe and focus on creativity after my daughter was born, as I stopped working full time.
Painting for me has always been a joy – a need to express the astounding beauty that often surrounds us often in the small and overlooked things such as a bright yellow lemon from my tree in the garden. The incredible detail in creation never ceases to amaze me and being able to interpret a fraction of that on a canvas is awe-inspiring.
My painting style is realistic, with the occasional nod towards abstraction, to incorporate additional unexpected elements – even if it’s just in the background of o particular artwork. Finding the perfect balance between realism and abstraction is a process that fascinates me – a journey, not just to point out what I see but also what I feel. Artists who inspire me have perfected balancing these opposite ends of the scale.
Additionally, colour is an essential element in my art, as the different shades and hues can set the mood or feeling of a piece.
