VOORSPOEDIGE NUWE JAAR!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Sjoe ons is nou al n paar dae in die nuwe jaar in, en ek hoop van harte dat dit goed gaan met jou?

Ons het pas teruggekeer nadat ons n paar dae weggebreek het na Nieu-Bethesda en voel weer fris en vars om die nuwe jaar aan te pak.

It was the first time in 20 years that I visited the Owl House again. This time was kind of weird since as soon as I entered the Camel Yard, I burst into tears, and then I couldn’t get out fast enough. I had goose bumps the whole time there. I still find it an amazing place.
We also visited these stone men and women at Ongeluksloot just outside Nieu-Bethesda.

We also went on a fossil tour which was very educational.

On our way back we saw this tree:

Maar voor dit het ons tydens Ou-kersdag die Slapende Skoonheid probeer ontwaak – We tried to hike up to the top of Sleeping Beauty, but only made it half way up. But still, the weather conditions were good, and we had a picnic near a cool stream.

It is great to be back and looking forward to return to the studio on Monday.

New work: “It’s a jungle out there”

the making of “a walk in the park”…

Oh hi! Just taking “a walk in the park” today with a hot-air -balloon 😉

How are you?

Educational Toy (cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

I started working on ‘A walk in the park” exhibition in November 2019, after I received an invitation from the Pretoria Art Association to have a small solo in their Black Box area.

detail Educatonal toy

but it was only in January that I started making the ’embroidered rubber balloons” for the show.

At first I was worried that these balloons was looking too much like those whoopee cushions! Do you remember those?

Anyway, I reassured myself that that was just my inner critic talking trying to spoil the fun I was having in the studio….

and then the pandemic happened!

So “A walk in the park” was meant to open on the 29th of May 2020, but with lockdown and everything, the show got postponed until further notice, and eventually the Art Association suggested we open it in September 2020.

Hare-raising thoughts 2019 Cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

Postpone it for so long?! What about all the bills to pay? That was indeed a hare-raising thought, and after careful consideration and a talk to one of my dear collectors I decided to host this exhibition myself. Directly from my studio for a change!

Rich Bitch 2020 Cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

because I am fortunate and lucky to ‘know’ some rich bitches right! 😉

Just kidding :-p

But seriously I am blown away by the support and interest in my work and this exhibition so far.

Thank you so much!
