At our October Members’ Meeting, we were fortunate to have 2015 Sanlam Portrait Award winner, John Pace, talking about what makes him tick. Owner and art director of the creative agency “At Pace”, family man and erstwhile Sunday painter, John considers himself the luckiest man alive, to have won this award.
John’s comfortably relaxed speaking style and his light-hearted approach to himself and his work, kept his audience captivated, as he walked us down his path of experience. He spoke about his life, his family and his painting process, which is for him, a ceaseless learning curve.
His “studio” is a converted kitchen island on wheels, which he trundles from one room to another at home, as the need arises. His inspiration is what he sees around him and his reference, the photographs he takes.
Thank you John, for your time, for sharing all this with us and sending us home happy and inspired.
