About "The Empty Space"
This is a painting from my African Dreamcatcher series.
A dreamcatcher or dream snare is handmade from a willow hoop. The hoop is then filled with the imitation of a spider's web made from fine yarn and decorated with sacred personal items, like feathers and beads.
Dreamcatchers are not meant to last forever - they are hung above a child's bed to protect him from nightmares, but are supposed to dry out and disintegrate with a child's coming of age.

WHY DO I PAINT:
I love stories. Words, poems and books are my main inspiration. I like to tell visual stories by making connections between disparate ideas. This calls for the viewer to create their own story while looking at an artwork. I am fascinated by the interactivity between my art and those who view it. I work only in acrylics and mixed media.
I am a mixed media artist and graphic designer based in Pretoria, South Africa. Although I studied architecture and then went on to work as a programmer and graphic designer, painting has always been a part of me. After being retrenched in 2009, I decided to rather work for myself. I am currently a freelance web and graphic designer, while exhibiting my paintings in the Pretoria area.
