About "King Protea Study"
SOLD at The Plant Exhibition, Kirstenbosch, Cape Town 16 -25 September 2016.
We are blessed to have two species of protea growing in our garden. From the earliest age, I have loved flowers and I love to watch them grow. This study is based on the King Protea that flowered in our garden, not so long ago. The beautiful King Protea is very much part of South Africa' s heritage: it is our country's National Flower, our National Cricket Team is named after the species and it is certainly admired and revered by us locals and many from abroad as well, I am sure. With the sunbirds being one of my favourite subjects to paint, I must mention that the proteas also provide the nectar source for them and many insects too. I am very proudly South African and this is definitely one of my absolute favourites.

About Monica K
My love of nature dates back to my very early childhood. It began with an interest in flowers, plants and animals but my obsession with butterflies and moths is probably the most noteworthy of all my interests. As I have matured, my interests have intensified and expanded and my passion for every aspect of nature has become an unquenchable thirst...I cannot get enough of it. This theme is evident throughout my work. God, Jesus and the nature They bless us with, are my pivotal inspiration.
I am proudly South African (and Hungarian) and am constantly in awe when I think about how blessed we are with the beauty that surrounds us. The landscape is ever-changing and everything within it sincerely exudes unmatched wonder and uniqueness. I love exploring and expressing the intricacies of the magnificent South African bushveld in my work predominantly, using various media. I am also captivated by the diverse wonders of nature around the world and enjoy exploring this subject in my art works too.
Being an artist and designer, I am inspired by various media and techniques and find it difficult to stay true to only one. I enjoy exploring my inspirations and expressing them in various art forms. My collections therefore vary between my chosen media. I am also passionate about recycling and using discarded sheet metal in my constructed art works.
Commissions gratefully accepted.
God and Jesus have blessed me with my talent, mostly self taught
