“Three are few things in life more challenging than being married. The intimacy tend to stir up and expose our most poisonous inner energies.
If we can learn to love here, we can love anywhere.
The question is can we love each other unconditionally, or is our love contingent upon the other person acting exactly as we need them to? It’s easy to ‘love’ somebody when they do what you want them to do, exactly how you want them to do it. But how do you behave when they step outside of your picture? How do you treat them when they hurt you? Those are the times that determine whether or not you actually love somebody.” – quote from the book Will
You are invited to a group show hosted by Stilbaai Galery:
” Love is hard. It takes enormous courage to open a wounded heart over and over again to the possibility of love’s bliss. Love demands bravery. a willingness to risk it all. But bravery does not mean the absence of fear. Bravery is learning to continue forward even when you’re terrified. ” – Will

Just a quick note to thank you, each and everyone who cared to read my blog/newsletters/social media posts and thank you for caring and sharing during 2022!!
I wish you a prosperous 2023.
This piece titled “The giant will care for you” was the final piece I managed to finish during 2022. As you can see I re-used some embroidered pieces from a work I did long ago titled: “Mandrakes pollinating” and I also added some new elements too.
Before I go…
Here is a quick recap of where you are able to see available work during January. Feel free to visit the galleries in real life or online.
I am delighted to have some new work included in the summer group show opening tomorrow, 13 December at .MContemporary in Sydney, Australia. You are welcome to join them for end of the year celebrations, but please note that RSVP is essential.

and ‘the two Wicked giants helped in the kitchen.’ while ‘I was magically fooled’.
by ‘the princess and her cat’
she was….’This lovely princess was a dog.’
Shocked…. ‘The King and Queen fell asleep’
