[0x1]there is no right or wrong way to tell a story.
Perhaps you will forget the beginning, or the middle or the end.
But a little piece of sunrise through a small window
can lift the heart regardless.[0x1]
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Alida Stewart was born in Tzaneen, on March 16, 1967. She has always had a passion for the serene and beauty of life. She took art lessons with Linda de Jager while at school and studied architecture at the University of the Free State where she also completed a master[0x1]s degree in architecture in 2001. She co-owned a ceramic studio in Knysna (1992-1995) where she created and decorated ceramics with her unique/distinct female faces. She has been teaching design and art to architecture students at UFS and NMMU for 13 years, inspiring her to develop a creativity program for toddlers and pre-scholars in 2004. Her focus on oil painting intensified since 2003 with tuition from Rina Badenhorst.
Her first solo exhibition was a huge success with 48 of the 56 paintings sold at the opening night! Alida has exhibited in a variety of galleries in Knysna, Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg and the Free State. Her works have also been seen on various art exhibitions and markets in the recent 4 years. The earthy colours, serenity and unique, distinct style of her paintings appeal to a broad market. ([0x1]heidi kuhn-boekkooi, okt 2005[0x1])
Alida has since sold more than 720 paintings.
Soms kan doek en kwas stories vertel wat woorde mee sukkel. Alida vertel hulle lankal, eers in Knysna in 'n pottebakkers ateljee met vroue in oksiede op klei. 'n Meestersgraad in Argitektuur het haar soveel meer geleer van die lewe as van geboue, van mense as van kennis...
Want mense is oral net mense - en soveel van hulle het al haar lewe aangeraak:
Rina Badenhorst wat Alida leer verf het met olieverf, van tegniek en van kwashaal op kwashaal om die storie te gaan haal. Heidi wat met haar eerste solo uitstalling in Oktober 2005 48 van Alida se werke op 'n openingsaand verkoop het - 'n nuwe deur help oopmaak het. Alida Bothma en Stephan wat elke werk wat sy aflaai met respek en waardering behandel, en Alida se stories nuwe plekke gee om vertel te word.
Maar oor dit alles skryf die Here Sy storie in haar lewe - sedert 2006 is Veelvoudige Sklerose (Multiple Sclerosis) by haar gediagnoseer, maar Hy berei haar telkens so wonderbaarlik voor vir dit wat Hy weet voorl[0xC3AA]. Alida s[0xC3AA] self: [0x1]Sy planne van voorspoed vir my is altyd soveel meer as wat ek kon dink of beplan...[0x1] (Martie Bitzer, Des 2010)
