Ordinary objects become canvas when it crosses my path.
I use “ingredients” salvaged from scrapyards and pawnshops.
Sometimes my process is painful to watch as I have to cut a doll in half.
Broken items friends want to get rid of, often finds its way into my home.
Since the very first artists painted cave walls with pigments and clay, humans have been making art with the humblest of materials. This is me going back to humble material. Also my little way of recycling.
Unexpectedly, vintage items get turned into art:
These wooden lasts are beautiful items even before I lay my hands on it.
An outdated chair became my “canvas”.
It is always nice to see such a “story-element” finding its way into a new home and transforming a corner of the room into a point of discussion.
Wooden crosses and birds become “reminders” with positive messages:
If interested in a wooden cross depicting your own special message, please contact me. R250 of each of these crosses goes towards Lazarus, a guy living in Bloemfontein, who hand-carve each cross.
“Wake up and be awesome” and “Wake up and be happy” – what stronger reminder can you have in your room or bathroom to wake up to each morning!
These figurines do not fall under the category of found objects but were specially cut out for me. Some are prints on wood and others are hand painted.
These objects are for the eclectic art lover. Someone who wants a unique piece of statement art in their home.
