they found a home

Art portfolio- my work

It’s the first time ever I’ve done a commission.

Luckily it was one that I had free reign to do what I wanted.  That also made it difficult, because I didn’t know the art patron well.  All I knew was that she has written a book called “Dans met die rooi rok” and that she wanted an embroidered rubber doll.  So instead of 1 I made 3 for her to choose from.

The first one I gave a red dress, because I’ve read about the book she wrote.  Unfortunately I haven’t read her book yet, but it’s on my reading list!   The quote on this artwork comes from the book: “Women wedlock and the world”.

The second “doll” is called “Blomme-meisie”.  and the third ones title is: “Gouelokkies was eintlik n beer/Goldilocks was actually a bear”.

Instead of one she chose two!

These two found a home:

"Ignorance" embroidery on rubber/inner tube. 400 x 180mm (private collection)

“Ignorance” embroidery on rubber/inner tube. 400 x 180mm (private collection)

"Blomme-meisie" embroidery on rubber/inner tube.  310 x120 mm (private collection)

“Blomme-meisie” embroidery on rubber/inner tube. 310 x120 mm (private collection)

I do hope that she gets as much joy from these pieces as I had in making them.
