About "San Smile"

Marcella, the San lady in the photo is from Namibia. She is one of the last of the San people, once a nomadic tribe of bushmen. For nearly 10 years we have being friends, she is a beautiful woman, who has the ability to trance dance, heal and do theatre. She comes from a remote and very barren area, and in winter months it is unbelievable the food she is able to get. Her family eat tree gum, roots and plants. Really what ever it is they can find. They have being fortunate enough that myself and family do send them money regulary to help them by food supply. Althouggh she has this life, there is a great amount of love and happiness in her life. She is responsible for doing theatre with the children at home, teaching them traditional songs, dance and story telling. The family all together is 48 poeple. The landscape in the picture is a good representation of their home.

About Lianne

An Ode to the Woman of Africa. They have maintained our heritage and culture. Each artwork sold, proceeds will be given to the woman in the picture as well as a community project introducing solar ovens into their region. 15 years ago, i spent time with a traditional healer, during the period i had a dream, of all the tradional woman dressed in a vast landscape, i floated through them. I told the healer of the dream, he said to me that the dream meant one day i would help all these women. so, this series is a strong locamotive to make the dream come to fruition.
All of these woman were photographed during traditional celebration ceremonies across Southern Africa, over the past 15 years. I really believe in the true sense of African "ubuntu" which means humbleness. Through the years of spending many evenings with them they have given me so much wisdom and great sense of identity. A San healer and elder shared with me the most profound words, he said " As i walk, talk, eat and sleep, i am constantly ONE with the universe, I do not need to go to church or meditate to be spiritual, i am always with God."
