New Nguni Painting

This painting was done for a client in Cape Town. They wanted one similar to a previous Nguni I did. We flipped the image and painted it on a larger canvas. It was a joy to do this oil painting after all the paper collages I have been making.
The painting gets shipped next week when it is dry. I realy hope they like it as much as I do,

Sodwana Bay June 2010

As always we had a wonderfull time at Sodwana. While the rest of the country was gripped in winter cold, we had sunshine and warm weather for 2 whole weeks.
It was heartbreaking coming back to a cold Gauteng. Wish I could have stayed there for another month.

Mandela Collages

I created these 4 Mandela collages for an exhibition currently on at the Duncan Yard gallery in Pretoria. The exhibition is all about South Africa and celebrating the soccer world cup about to start here in 3 days.
Madiba is such a recognisable SA icon, I had a lot of fun doing these collages.
The background is covered in a traditional SA fabric called "shwe shwe" that the women use to make dresses.

Small Paper Doll Collages

4 New collages I made for an exhibition at a friends house. I am thinking of bringing out a stationary range with my collages images. Think the colours and designs could work well.

New Studio

I haven't been updating my blog for a while, but there is a valid reason, in fact an astounding reason. After years of working on my diningroom table and having the house in a terrible mess I am finaly getting my own studio. Yeahhh!
I have been pestering my poor husband for a space of my own and at last he fell for the idea of converting old garages at the bottom of our property into a studio for me. It is taking much longer than we thought as we are not using contractors to do the build, but a local builder and his 2 helpers. The electical and plumbing work we are doing ourselves.
After 8 weeks most of the building work, roof, plumbing and electrical work is done. This coming week the ceilings are going up and painting will begin.
I am counting the sleeps until I can move in!!

The old garages we are converting

Here you can see the veranda and the new studio kitchen

Almost there... The roof is on and all the plastering is finished. Will post a photo of the finished project asap.
