About "Ndebele home"
About 2 kilometres from our farm is the home of Martiens Masilele of the Ndebele nation. Their homes are traditionally painted with colourful patterns. The women of the house are the artists, and each home varies according to the artists favourite patterns and colours. I loved the peaceful setting, the unhurried atmosphere of the place and tried to capture it here.
I painted and illustrated for the advertising industry until my first solo exhibition in 1990. Subsequently I've spent most of my time working in oils and watercolours for commissions and exhibitions. I have also enjoyed illustrating children's books, the most recent being a children's fairy book written by long-time friend Margaret Roberts.
2 solo exhibitions - 1991 and 1994
3 year Art Diploma at Durban's Natal Technical College.
