Behind the scenes of Rubber ever after

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

They say something like : All work and no play makes one …(insert word)……, but at the KKNK we played as hard as we worked and vice a versa.

One of the reasons I love exhibiting at the arts festival is the interaction.  Meeting new people.  Discussions.  Conversations.  New friendships being formed.  Now I understand why my colleague  Robert Hamblin referred to the artists exhibiting at last years festival as family; because after 7 days it feels like being part of a family.   Thank you Robert for these snapshots!

Here I am with my Crown-Prince. My husband, muse, friend, lover, critic, support, father of our children, and the one who help me hang the exhibition!

Luckily my venue was at such a good spot that I could enjoy some tea/coffee very often and be right there at my space.

I am a huge admirer of the work by Willem Boshoff, and it was an honour to finally meet him.  He was one of the main festival artists.  His show was called : Big druid in his cubicle.  See more here
