Sjon de Groot principally works in oils for his landscapes, but also experiments in ethereal masks and watercolours.  The work is bold and multi-dimensional, an expression in colour of an African coming to terms with the landscapes of his adopted land.

Originally trained by Geoffrey and Michael Armstrong at the Johannesburg School of Art in South Africa, Sjon de Groot completed many commissions for business and private collectors before emigrating to Canada in 1997. Since arriving in Canada, de Groot has participated in several exhibitions:
