About "OvaHimba Lady"
I wanted to take paper to another dimension. The beauty of african women with their decorative hair and headdresses inspired me to make a life size interpretation. The lovely monotone quality of the paper and working with light and shade.
Invented a way to use elephant and rhino dung in paper manufacture in mid eighties - an idea that has been emulated by artists and crafters all over the world. Pioneered paper art and is now creating 3 dimensional African images in handmade paper. In contrast to the paper she is working with Aluminum for its shining and textural qualities.
One man and group exhibitions every year since 1979. All over South Africa and in London.
