About "Giraffe Montage"
Giraffe defy the norm. They are exceptionally tall, gentle and inquisitive and graceful. I love them. Their patches make them stand out and watching them is such a pleasure. The montage came about chiefly after a sighting of a very itchy giraffe who found the perfect bush in height and texture to scratch away his ticks and itches. He was rather ungainly but had so much joy from this bush I placed him fairly centrally and built the rest of the montage around him.
I love to draw. When a fellow student told me that I was too happy to ever be an artist I laughed because drawing and painting gives me great joy. I received the art prize in matric and after completing a diploma in graphic design worked as a graphic artist until my children were born, after which i freelanced in the same field. During this time I also completed over 200 portraits on a commission basis in pastels, oils and watercolor. I became increasingly passionate about the fine arts and joined the Miniature Art Society of SA, although still paint in large formats as well. I love the bush and animals, but find the human form the most challenging and beautiful.
