Local artist Joshua Miles was born and raised in the Western Cape where he attended the renowned Michaelis Art School of the University of Cape Town.

He met his Scottish wife in Hermanus, and after living in Scotland and London for several years, returned to South Africa. He now lives and works in Baarskeerdersbos near Hermanus.

Joshua drew early inspiration from art historian and artist Elsa Miles. As a child he watched her producing woodcuts and was taught the technical aspects of the medium by Cecil Skotnes at Michaelis Art School.

Joshua’s skillful interpretation of shadow and the effect of light on water is featured in many of his oil paintings and reduction woodcuts. He finds his inspiration in the beautiful landscapes of the Overberg and Little Karoo (See 16 Images, or click here for Flickr slideshow).
