Richard Bothma

I was born and raised in Margate, a small coastal town in KZN, South Africa. My passion started from a very young age, where the beauty of nature inspired me. I am an avid garden and nature lover. I am a landscaper for a local garden centre in my hometown. I started pencil sketches from about the age of 10 years old, drawing flowers, wildlife and still life. I then started painting in 2015 and developed a strong passion for oil paintings. My homeland (South African) landscapes are my inspiration for my paintings. I have become best known for my sky techniques and water lilies scenes.
