Day 5 Lock-down in South-Africa. End of the month Studio-newsletter time!

I hope you are doing fine and well under the current circumstances.

I’ve been keeping busy in the kitchen, riding bicycle with my boys= round and around the house, reading articles, stitching a little bit and trying to stay informed. What have you been up to?

During the monhts pre-corona, I’ve been preparing for the “Wild, Wild Life exhibition curated by Alex Hamilton to be hosted by the Gallery Glen Carlou.  It was supposed to open on the 5th of April 2020, but the opening (virtual or otherwise) have been delayed until after lock-down.  I will keep you posted, but you are welcome to request a digital catalogue from:!

Winter newsletter

It’s been a while, but I thought today will be a good day to share what is happening in the studio because – 21 June usually marks the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, which is the day of the year with the fewest hours of daylight in the Southern Hemisphere….(I hope to get some extra sleep 🙂
