Artist Bio:

I was extremely privileged to grow up with a very creative an artistic Mom who supported me in my art from a young age.

I did art as a subject in school and did Jewellery design at Tygerberg art centre. I went on to study B.Prim.Ed Art at Stellenbosch University and since then have been inspiring young people to believe in their art.

After doing commissioned murals in Pretoria for years I moved to Somerset West and started teaching at Somerset College.

It was during those early years of teaching that I started painting for pure enjoyment in my spare time; painting what I loved and creating works that I was proud of.

Matthew Cooke

Growing up I had a grandfather who painted very classically styled watercolour landscapes and I gave it a go back then. I lost the urge for a long time after. Last year’s lockdown and all the stress that came with it, together with inspiration from my sister who has been painting for a while now, spurred me on to begin this journey that has turned into a bit of an obsession. Working from my own Instagram photos as well as others that I find all over the place online, I have been thoroughly enjoying the combination of loose penwork and watercolour.
