Trish’s art is an invitation to experience an opening of the heart, and a timeless world of peace, through the doorway of beauty. She aspires to capture and deeply celebrate the quiet times and the grace and elegance with which she loves to surround herself. Painting is a great joy for her, and she relishes the possibility of transporting people away from the chaos that often characterizes our minds and our world, and into a beautiful, still place through her work.
She has aligned herself with the new movement that is currently sweeping across the world – a resurgence of classical atelier painting methods and practices, interpreted in a modern way. Strong late nineteenth century influences include William Adolphe Bouguereau, Pierre-Auguste Cot and John Singer Sargent and contemporary inspiration comes from the work of artists such as Douglas Flynt, Michael Klein and Katie G. Whipple.
Trish considers herself to be extremely lucky to be able to dedicate herself to art. She paints from her Cape Town studio and travels for inspiration and further study. Her most recent workshops were with Daniel J. Keys in San Francisco and with Katie G. Whipple in New York and she is currently dedicating herself to the study of classical drawing and painting methods under master realist painter, Douglas Flynt, who resides in the USA. Besides being an artist, Trish is also a devoted wife and mother to four adult children, two Siberian Forest cats and her much-loved dog. The city of her soul, she travels to Paris as often as she can.
Trish was born in 1970 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
