About "Thorns and Horns"
part of a series "on the (t)horns of a dilemma: protecting what we value." The idea for this exhibition began with a simple recognition of the striking similarity between horns and thorns, ie cattle with large horns and those wonderful large paired thorns you find on Acacia trees. It quickly morphed into a series looking at protecting what one holds valuable and the fact that those items are relative depending on who you are.
I love expressing my reaction to what I see around me in bold loose brushstrokes and vibrant colours, sometimes abstract, sometimes not! My themes and the way I express them vary widely, but I am preoccupied with the plight of women and children in Africa, and a love for architecture and nature also feature often. I used to work mainly in oils, but also use photography and collage to express ideas. The latest series of work uses encaustic. The melted wax brings a wonderful dimension of transparency and texture to the work.
Ceramics: between 1985 and 1990, many group exhibions at regional and National level with APSA.
Geology, Maths, chemistry, also diploma in ceramic science
