About "Samburu Warrior (1)"

Beaded jewellry is an important part of the warrior's decoration. They are given to them by their mothers and lady friends or by one of their warrior friends as a sign of friendship.

The earplugs are made from ivory which they found in the field. Around his neck he wears a beaded charm given to him by a diviner or laibon

About Ansa

Ansa Nel

"Ansa Lyon Nel, the artist, has always been fascinated by the colourful traditional peoples of Africa as well as its magnificent natural life."

As a pastel artist she made it her calling in life to tell the story of these different cultures like the Maasai, the Samburu, the Hamar etc. Ansa is especially drawn to the position and plight of women in the world. She always strife to portray the inner beauty of every person she paints. Closest to my heart will always be the plight and the role of women in these cultures and with my paintings I try to create a greater awareness of the beauty of these African cultures and the role women play in them

About


"I was a potter for many years before I put my hand to the canvas. I enjoyed the pottery, especially giving classes to school children which I did for more than twenty years."
When my daughters got married, I felt the urge to paint their portraits as a way of celebrating this new phase of their adult lives. From then on my focus shifted away from the pottery to painting portraits and wild life.


I am open to take on commissions
