About Jannie

The rugged African landscape is my inspiration, specifically The Karoo and Northern KZN, Msinga. I see the lanscape as metaphors of life and death, and frequently include historical figures that played an important part in the development of SA such as Olive Schreiner and Helen Martins of the Owl House. I use vibrant expressive colours and forms in an attempt to
create an AFRICANESS in my work. I have worked extensively amongst the rural craftspersons of KZN, and am considered as a world autority on Zulu Basketry and published the book Zulu Basketry a few years ago
I have works in the following collections: Durban Art Gallery, Univ Of KZN, Durban Univ of Technology, Carnegie Gallery, Eshowe Gallery, Vukani Museum and in private collections locally and in the USA. In 1992 i won first prize in the Natal Arts Trust competition
