Whew, July was a strange month: from billionaires in space, to looting in South Africa and more close to home = a broken appliances as well as a traffic fine. Let’s hope August will be peaceful, calm, and things working out without rushing;-)
August is my birthday month and I am happy to say that some of my older work will be included in an upcoming exhibition which opens on the same day as my birthday! In celebration I will be giving away this ‘Chocolate bunny” from this exhibition to one lucky person.
This group exhibition is called: Thread(ed): Interlacing womxn in the 21st century, to be held at the Association of Arts, Pretoria from 13 August – 4 September 2021
More details to follow later

That’s a wrap for now. Keep calm and keep warm until next time….
I am happy to announce that these two in the detail of the work: “The long hard voyage took many days. But finally the ship anchored in a river near the King’s palace” finally arrived at MContemporary gallery in Australia today!
some of the crew members had to wait patiently while: “Time passed and the hungry vulture ate the beanstalk and it broke. But the child grew to be a beautiful princess.” (see detail of the work below)
Some of the works are destined for the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair later this year….more details to follow.
On that note….wishing you a wonderful week. Keep safe and stay warm – until we speak againxxx
