About "Calabash Girl"

My admiration of black women, their beauty, their serenity and the vibrancy of their traditional dress inspired this painting. The colours signify our wonderful rainbow nation.

About Jeni

Jeni Smithies

Born in the wilds of Zambia in 1960, I developed a deep passion for the outdoors, wildlife and solitude. My father was an adventurist and my mother and I accompanied him on many excursions into the Kafue and the Luangwa Valley, which left me in sheer awe of nature[0x1]s beauty. It is a time of my life that has influenced my entire thinking and instilled in me a need to remember what I have seen by capturing those images on canvas. In that way, I can share those moments with others, despite the fact that times and places have changed.

After many years of working in a corporate environment, I decided to resign and find myself again. I started a mural/trompe l[0x1]oeil business, which kept me busy for fifteen years, travelling all over South Africa, then battled cancer for two years and won. Another special moment in time....

I now live at Sundays River in the Eastern Cape, next to the Addo Elephant National Park, where I paint endlessly. Few people have lived such an exciting, adventurous and challenging life - the time to record it is now. If I am able to capture some of my memories and find that others are drawn to those paintings through their very essence, I will have shared my blessing. I am a qualified game ranger and even though I have not used that knowledge for employment, I am told that my knowledge gives my wildlife paintings life - an innate understanding of each animal I paint.
I strive for perfection as I record my memories. Every brush stroke is a record of one moment in time.
