Amazing neighbours and friends rescued a large canvas from my burning studio during our house fire in February…plastic covering had fused to the canvas with the heat, and created this Baobab shape which inspired me..over the year I have added to the piece, shape to the tree, copper details to the baobab, and now a powerful Zebra rears against the Baobab.

It has been part of the exhibition, ” A Celebration of 2014, the Chinese Year of The Horse”

    Beautiful art. It all conj ours up a deep African feeling of taste , touch and smell. So alive.

  17. taurai dhliwayo says:

    Beautiful work. I like the contrast between the background and foreground. It brings out character in your work. Because of the subtlety of the background the main attraction speaks with force that is not easy to ignore.
