Trish’s expressive art is an invitation to experience an opening of the heart and to transcend the mundane world through the magical doorway of beauty. Passionate about the experience of beauty and its relationship to her art, she aspires – and is inspired – to capture and deeply celebrate grace and radiance in her oil paintings. Strongly drawn to the ethereal beauty of flowers, these are one of Trish’s favourite subjects, but she also paints still lifes and landscapes.
Disillusioned with the Modernist paradigm, Trish has passionately aligned herself with the new movement that is currently sweeping across the world of a resurgence of interest in teaching and acquiring the methods, skills and knowledge of the academically trained realist old masters.
Trish considers herself to be extremely lucky to be able to dedicate herself to her art. She paints from her Cape Town studio and travels to Paris for inspiration and all over the world for 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 the master realist Douglas Flynt 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 maltese dogs.
Trish was born in 1970 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
