About The Boot Polish Painter
I trained in Zimbabwe as a Textile and Jacquard designer at the Bulawayo College of Applied Art and Design gaining a distinction in Textile Technology. After 36 years working in High Street retail I rediscovered my creative mojo and decided on experimental work using boot polish. This involves painting with my fingers and hog hair brushes using the boot polish as the medium on cartridge paper primed with clear floor polish.
I work towards a sense of atmosphere in my work and also concentrate on mark making to give the impression of texture where needed.
It is a work in progress....and this is my journey.
