Annual Art Exhibition at La Lucia Mall

2-months-in-purgatoryThis year my annual exhibition at La Lucia Mall has been extended to two and a half months, starting on Sat 15th November and ending the last day of January 2015.

Shop no. 49 has an excellent position on the upper level opposite Woolworths, ( the old Scoin Shop) great lighting and a fair size so please pop in to say hello and perhaps have a cup of tea! I have a new collection of work and will also be demonstrating in my "pop-up gallery.


My Largest Commission

I was fortunate enough to secure my largest commission of my career as a result  -  a 5-panel composition of zebras for the office of a director of a large company. I did enjoy meeting old friends and new clients again although the bush beckoned on many occasions!

Helena Vogelzang displayed two of her beautiful bronzes as well, one of which was sold - a bush baby which I was sorely tempted to buy myself!




To negate the claustrophobic confines of a shopping centre, Liz and I spent some time at Phinda reserve in Zululand after the exhibition. Rock Lodge was, as always, superb
and extremely comfortable,great sightings, (leopard this time as well) great food, great wine!


To spend time in the bush is always therapeutic, calming and uplifting at the same time. From the smallest dung-beetle to the rumbling elephant, graceful cheetah and elusive leopard -
Phinda is only a 2 1/2 drive from our home in Umhlanga Rocks and worth every cent, If you have not been.... Go!


Until the next time  -  all the very best for 2014.
