I paint using a variety of media, make jewellery, and do a bit of macrame, and micro -macrame. After unintentionally having watched an extremely traumatizing news video on rhino poaching a few years back, it became clear to me what I had to do: Get my helicopter license and join Damien Mander in the IAPF fight to protect the wilderness in Mozambique. Obviously. Idea #2. I paint, so, paint Rhinos. Thus began the “Silent Circus” series. It has grown to include other creatures - my first love - elephants, and marine mammals, pegasus, pangolins…. At times, I believe I am taking a break from the circus, and returning to the wonderful world of abstraction. As the abstract piece develops, I find it inevitably becomes a strange landscape with explosions, grenades and rifles in the midst. It’s the garden of Eden; an incredible place with enormous possibilities. The circus has moved beyond the border of the tent. Please come and enjoy the show.
