About Meyer Van Rensburg

Meyer van Rensburg paints in oils and does charcoal sketches. He has been drawing ever since he can remember, first imitating illustrations in magazines at his parents' home as a schoolboy, and then started painting in oils for his own enjoyment. Most of his paintings are concentrated around a very strong central theme.
He was born in the Northern Cape, in South Africa, and spent his youth as a farmer's son, while attending school near Kimberley and later at Brits, near Pretoria. From this background emerges a love for gardening: planting, watering and cultivating seeds. This fits in well with the meaning of his first name: 'sower of seeds' and the theme is obvious in many of his paintings. His earlier paintings were more abstract and surrealistic, but lately he has been concentrating more on different aspects of grasslands and wheatfields, which have always fascinated him.
Until 2004, Meyer worked as a music recording engineer in South Africa and also as a freelance radio presenter at Radio Pulpit, where he presented the very popular, 'Running the Race,' interviewing Christian sportsmen on Friday mornings.
He got his doctorate in theology in 1998 and emigrated to the UK in 2004, currently residing in a country cottage in Greater London.
Meyer's books (including an anthology of Afrikaans poetry) can be seen on Amazon. He writes extensively, regularly contributing articles to magazines and is also a popular conference speaker. Since 2004 he has been lecturing in the UK, first in Bristol and then in London, where he has taught on television from time to time. He also travels worldwide.
He is married to Lorraine and they are the proud parents of five daughters.
