About "The Gold Mine"
O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always that it might be well with them and with their children for ever.
Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you; ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
Ye shall walk in all the ways in which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.
Deut. 6:3-11 and 24-25
Hear therefore O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
Hear O Israel the Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and soul and with all thy might.
And these words which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shall teach them diligently unto thy children and shall talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shall bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thy shalt write them upon the posts of thy house and on thy gates.
And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildest not.
And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedest not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantest not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full.
And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law and the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfil.
For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Having dabbled in language and the visual arts during my sojourn at the halls of higher education (Pretoria University and later at UNISA), I discovered that it is through the visualization and expression of creative thoughts that I am able to communicate most effectively. I am constantly challenged to combine image, word, content and process into a cohesive whole in order to conceptualize that which I am passionate about. The Bible is my greatest source of inspiration as its message, values and directives are my life[0x1]s controlling force.
I prefer to use personal symbols, represented by images of every day simple objects, to express the essence of ideas, explore solutions and ask questions. I attempt to make suggestions rather than make statements. My work remains open-ended and allows the viewer to partner the creative process on an intellectual and an emotional level. I am constantly aware of my dependence on, and inheritance from, the Great Creator in whose image we are all made. My input is thus essentially that of hope, healing, redemption, refuge and salvation, providing a place of rest for the spirit.
