VERPLANTING

After my marriage to Rikus, I was transplanted to the Western Cape. I had to grow new roots and learn to adapt to and appreciate being enclosed by majestic mountains. I was also confronted with the reality of my Western heritage and how this informs my experience of living in Africa. All these issues found reflection in my work- with plants, flowers and bulbs symbolizing the necessity to adapt, change, conform and flourish.
