Studio update….

Art portfolio- my work

Soon I won’t need to take orders anymore. I won’t be waitressing in the evenings because we will be relocating to another city mid April – that is if we find a decent house to rent. My husband found work at a construction company.  We will be moving away from the Klein Karoo, closer to the Coast.  Looking forward to unpack all my ‘stuff’ and start a new adventure.

Talking about orders, I am currently busy finishing the ‘orde’ series:

orde phthiraptera

Orde Phthiraptera: luise/lice

“Wyfieluise is meer volop as mannetjies en as mannetjies skaars word, kan die wyfies eiers lê wat uitbroei sonder dat hulle gepaar het.  Die eiers (of nete) word aan die vere of hare vasgeplak.  Die luise van seerobbe is so aangepas dat hulle net eiers op die robbe lê in die tyd van die jaar wanneer die robbe op land bly om self geboorte te gee en kleintjies groot te maak.” from the book “Ons eie insekte”

10 down 5 to go.  They must be finished in time to be exhibited at ArtKaroo gallery during the KKNK.

I am also in the process to create my own website.  I finally realized that a blog can not possibly function as a website and that the two is very different.  I am taking my time with it, but hopefully I will be able to launch it soon.

On my bedside table is the “Ultimate building book” by Steven Cane. I really enjoy it, but my boys are too small to do some of the projects yet, so I will make some notes so that we can build some amazing stuff when they are bigger.  In the meantime I am inspired to become a ‘sidewalk superintendant’.


“Even with insects- a novel” by Barbara Erasmus is another book beside my bed.  I love the following quote on page 119:

“He said that Eliot was wrong.  Home isn’t where you start from.  It is where you go back to.”
