I am leaving to travel to Ireland in a couple weeks! I have not traveled to another country in years and I am feeling pretty nostalgic at the moment. So I decided to post some incredible lush landscape pictures from when I was living in South Africa. I love that place and I hope to go back soon. Sigh.
I have an exciting update! I decided to Google my name for random reasons and I found a trail of my artwork ‘pinned’ on Pinterest. How cool is that?
Thank you art & textile bloggers, specifically GinnyBranchStelling! You can find it here:
What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in her heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.
