The range of water river studies I created from a place of peace. My move to Stellenbosch away from the sea side I adore so, introduced me to the wonders of the Eerste River. The rainwater source captured right up in the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve mountains, flows down through the town of Stellenbosch (and probably out to sea without being utilised correctly). I called this range Tranquille. Because of the amounts of hours I spent in bliss under the dappled light of the trees, mesmorised by the graphic patterns in the flow of water, We all know the healing powers of water, the attachment of your sorrows to the flow and 'letting go'. I created this range as part of my Healing Room concept. Artworks are there to be contemplative, reflective, lovely, peaceful and enjoyable.
Being creative and making art is so much part of my life : I do it all day. Truly!! Right from a young girl I have been making art pieces - from fireplace screen covers made with string art (remember that!), decoupage pictures, plywood fish mobiles, room dividers, placemats.....All around my home you will see hand made products. In my professional life I am a full time illustrator and designer. Quite honestly throughout my journey I have been in denial about being called 'an artist', I have always referred to myself as a professional consultant and problem solver for my industry. The last 11 years have taken me from the digital world of work into my studio and working with my hands again. In my working career I have a certain style. In painting my style seems to emanate from my own feelings and growth. As I enjoy a particular paint or product I create ranges. Once I've explored that product, I try another and create a new style and set. Creativity is what flows through me. Mostly I love to share my work. Whether you visit my home or visit my sites. I feel my artworks are soothing, contemplative, relaxing.....in short I call them Healing Rooms. If you are inspired by my artworks please do let me know. If you would like to grace your living space with a piece of me, I would be eternally blessed and grateful.
