I am an artist and I live in a small village in the Amathole Mountains of the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
My home is set on the verge of the indigenous forest in a dramatically beautiful landscape. It was exactly the right place to build an outdoor art installation, where ecology, art and a sense of the sanctity of Earth could all come together.
And so I created the Eco-Shrine Centre for Art and Ecology in 1995. Itís been open ever since.
Visitors are immediately struck by the breathtaking landscape and in it, the sight of large oil paintings displayed in sculpted niches joined by a seemingly flowing, low wall of cement relief. The Eco-shrine looks as if it has always been there.
My adjacent studio is open to the public. It has a high thatched ceiling and a feel of long ago.
There are always new paintings on the easels and walls and I also sell good quality prints of my works in poster and card format.
