About "African Fish Eagle"

Alvera loved fish eagles. They epitomised her idea of freedom and grace. Her husband fed the birds in their garden in Port Alfred every day and they were often thrilled to feed two fish eagles. These birds would sit in the paw-paw tree in their garden and call to Alvera and John to come out and feed them. Even though they kept their distance, it did feel to Alvera and John as if they had a special bond with these two birds.

About Alvera

Alvera Walker

Alvera Walker passed away in Feb 2008 at the age of 82. She started painting at 62 when she joined a local art club in Port Alfred. Within a year she was selling potboilers at the local coffee shops. Alvera loved painting the wildlife big five, animals which she grew up with in the Rhodesian bushveld. She spent the last ten years of her life near the sea in Port Alfred, a lovely quiet seaside town in the Eastern Cape. Many of Alvera's magnificent seascapes and dolphins were inspired by the beauty of this place. She leaves a legacy of only 150 paintings that include birds, dolphins, wildlife and flowers. She also painted some whimsical paintings that she called her "What if? "paintings, which were strongly influenced by Salvador Dali. Many of her paintings have been sold to art lovers around the world and now grace some of the most beautiful homes in the world.
