About "Paternoster Vissermanne"
I took a picture years ago of this dissapointed Paternoster fishermen when they came back from the sea and could not manage to catch any fish. I drew the line drawing with a fine point permanent marker onto transparency and developed the polymer plate with the transparency emulsion-down in the contact frame in the sun's exposure and inked and printed the plate the same intaglio way as normal, tradional etchings.
Gretha is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
I liked drawing things from an early age - I remember trying to capture the beauty of the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, my country of birth when I was a mere four years old! I guess I can say I enjoy to create something, being it oil paintings, acrylic paintings, etchings, pencil drawings or cement sculptures, it does not really matter what I am creating, as long as I enjoy what I am doing.
2007, Oct: Part of a group exhibition at Porchie's "Fresh Talent" exhibition at his gallery in Pretoria.
BA (Art Direction) degree at PU for CHE (North West University)
