About "Overcome ..."
It’s not about colour
I am passionate about children and I believe all children are born as being bright, colourful, confident, wise and with a sense of humour. They learn from adults to feel insecure, scared, invisible and less than - just as some of us have.
Life has become so fast and with parents both working, children do not get the attention they deserve. Raising a child takes more than any parent is ever prepared for, but children should not have to pay the price for that.
So often a child rushes in to quickly share something with you. Drop everything you are busy with. Look at his/her little face. See the expression! Take note of every emotion, however fleeting it may be. It’s important to them. If you miss it, you won’t even know and they might never forget.
Colour is my vehicle to draw people’s attention to really look and see what they are missing. It is all about connecting with the emotion and the expression thereof on these little faces.
Love it? Hate it? Just don’t ignore it!
This girl's life is like most older children with two working parents. She's a middle child with a much older sister. Her parents could not be bothered with her and as a result she turned to people and places where she felt she mattered, with less than desirable results. She's the result of people having children because they can and not because they should.

Also known as Sannette Fourie. I'm passionate about women, children and colour. Colour is my vehicle to get the viewer's attention to connect with the emotion, the expression, to look deep within themselves and connect with whatever moves them. There is something of everybody in my paintings. [0xD][0xA]I'm fascinated by the contrast that the female form presents. The softness of their skin, the roundness of their form, their vulnerability; compared to how strong their characters are, their souls, how much they can survive, how many times they can start over.
