‘Dagdromer’…a reminder

Installation view of my work

Just a quick reminder that my studio will be open to the public for two days only when I will host a ‘group exhibition’ titled “Dagdromer”:


This will most likely be the first and last time I will host an exhibition as part of the Hessequa Art Route. In the future I will only accommodate studio visits per appointment only. 😉

Should you not be able to visit Riversdale in the flesh, please feel free to view the work by my fellow friends and artists, by clicking on the link below;-)

We hope to see you soon!

Introducing fellow artists and Daydreamers;-)

Artist Nadine Hansen and myself

I would like to introduce fellow artist and friend Nadine Hansen.

I met Nadine in 2016 when she invited me as a fellow inhabitant of Stilbaai in the Western Cape, to exhibit at her pop up exhibition, which she hosted during December 2016.

Since then we kept in contact and on invitation from the Hessequa Art Route, we launched our exhibition “Inherited Dysfunction” during the Hessequa Harmonie festival September 2021.

So I am honoured to work with her again this year and have her work in my studio for this exhibition “Dagdromer’.  Here is a quote that inspired Nadine to take part in this exhibition. To view more of her work please click on the link to the online catalogue below.

“I am often daydreaming, and it’s because I’ve always liked the idea of there being something more than the normal world”.Samantha Shanon

“Daydream, imagine, and reflect. It’s the source of infinite creativity”. Deepak Chopra

Next up is Nicole Hein:

Me and Nicole in my studio last year

I had the privilege of meeting Nicole (Nicky as we call her) last year at the first Hessequa Art Route meeting in Riversdale, WC. Since then I have enjoyed being in her company having stimulating conversations about art, life and the world as we know it. 

I am looking forward to many more hours in conversation with this beautiful creative and talented soul, and am happy to present her prints at my studio. You may view her work in the catalogue link below.

Last but not least, I would like to introduce you to Marelise Visser:

Marelise Visser and myself

I met Marelise Visser round-about 2008 after the birth of my son,  at a group meeting called La Leche (aka desperate breast-feeding club). 

After that we bumped into each other in intervals and when I moved to Stilbaai back in 2013 we met again outside a pre-school. Marelise is the owner of Bay Beauty Salon in Stilbaai and has upon a couple of occasions done my nails for exhibitions. 

Marelise took up the paintbrush back in 2016 for the first time, and since then there is no stopping her exploration and  creativity with watercolour and oil paintings .

Please click on the catalogue in the link below to view the works done by Marelise for this exhibition.
