About "Sunny Skies"
Our country is so beautiful yet we soak its earth with the boold from violence we experience. We use weapons to protect ourselves, yet at the same time the weapons inflict destruction. I feel that our earth is crying for our sins of violence.
I qualified as a Textile designer at the Pretoria Technikon in 1983 and for a number of years designed and printed material for the craft and quilters markets. A few years ago I went back to the Technikon to do my B Tech in Textile Design and Technology, which I thouroghly enjoyed. I was fortunate to work as a designer for Mosaic Arts in Pretoria for several years. I love the vibrance of the colours and textures of mosaic tiles and the challenge of creating a whole design out of small bits and pieces. I was invloved in designing mosaics that were sent to places like Dubai, the Seychelles, Mauritius and the Ivory Coast. I was privileged to have designed the mosaic pillars for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership School in Henley-on-Klip. Presently I am involved with the Quin Sculpture Garden where the work of sculptor Maureen Quin is exhibited. My paintings are an expression of my emotions, my observations, my hopes and dreams. i hope with all my heart that my work will touch the viewer in his inner being.
