Art on paper
Showing all 5 results
Pencil and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, stitching onto paper, mixed media, monotype and other artworks inspired by nature, created on paper. Paper I often use are: Fabriano, textured cotton rag paper, cartridge paper, brown kraft paper, hand-made and found/upcycled paper. These artworks are all original artworks – one-of-a-kind – and expresses my explorations and experience of nature, biodiversity or ecology, and my soul connection to my own deepest Self, Spirit, the Cosmos and Mother Earth.
I often create my art as a prayer, with the intention of honouring the sacred within all things. My art on paper also includes drawings, paintings and nature observations that include representational art of insects, leaves, trees, rocks and feathers. Other artworks are expressive and intuitive explorations that bring different elements together – different subjects, materials, concepts or views. Some of my drawings inspired by nature are created ‘plein air’ (19th century style of painting outside) – on site when I am hiking, going to the beach or visiting a site to create land art.
Please note that I only sell & deliver within South Africa through this online shop. If you’re interested in my work and based outside of South Africa, please contact me.
Deer Park Tree Moment
pencil on art paper
29.7 x 420 cm
2019 A drawing inspired by land art created in Deer Park at the foot of Table Mountain – breaking and fitting twigs found on the ground into the nook of a tree. This drawing was created in a very sensitive way to capture the fragility of the moment – at any moment a gust of wind, or a finger’s touch pushing to hard onto the supporting branch, and most of the pieces of twig would fall out and need to be re-placed into the nook.
Finding Growth – watercolour and pencil drawing
Forest Floor Dream
Ink on paper, drawing with fineliner, unframed
29.7 x 420 cm
2018 This ink on paper drawing is a reminder of nature's fragile balance. The Knysna Leaf-folding Frog (Afrixalus knysnae) ranks amongst the highest in need for conservation orientated research within South African threatened frogs. In the light that many of the sites are so small, there is a need to take action to preserve these sites. Control of invasive vegetation is imperative for this species’ survival.
