Our animals

I seem to be the only positive SA left ... it really feels like there is so much negativity out there. My partner wants to leave, my friends , we have been through this all before in 1995 when things looked very dire.  We pulled through . Sorry, but I love my country, I love white black colored Indian I don't care what you are South Africans ( but i love our animals more than all of you)  Shine up - we can make this work.

I'm not sure if anyone even reads my blog so it has become a bit of a diary . Sorry if you are the only one reading this !

PS if you are a tourist I promise you will be ok !!!

Nguni

I've photographed a LOT of nguni. I live in KZN and they are very loved and a huge part of Zulu Culture. Lucky for me I have friend who has a herd and I have to say they are the happiest cows I've ever seen and more like pets. Each  one even has their own name. He has horses too . Here are just a few.

Botswana and Zim on linen

One of the nicest things about design, is building up a relationship with clients. They learn to trust you, and short cut the search and come straight to you because somehow there's a click. Here are a few of my Botswana images on raw linen for a decorator who I greatly admire.

Aloes for Africa

One of the most beautiful things about living in KZN, South Africa is our vast differences in landscape - from the green hills and valleys on the coast, to the magnificent berg, and the inland hills with the beautiful aloes scattered around the traditional rural huts.

Coming soon !

















Cape Town

I recently visited Cape Town and as usual fell in love with its magic. I'm one of those tourist types that stop and take photos out my car of Table Mountain from all angles... Cape Townians , I think take their mountain for granted!  I always do the usual drive around the Peninsula and visit my favorite places like Signal Hill, the Waterfront Food Market, and any walk in the Constantia area.

I love the sunset from SeaPoint and one of my favorite cushions is from here.

I have many Cape Town Cushions and prints but here are a few more...

Umhlanga Rocks


I live in Umhlanga and it must be one of the nicest places to holiday, especially from May to July, when the weather is at is most beautiful. Warm sunny days and cool evenings, magical sunsets, lots of good winds for the surfers and the beautiful beaches are nice and quiet. We have it all.

July is Aloe season and they are very much part of our lives.


The iconic lighthouse and Oyster Box Hotel



Above are Arctic Terns . Take a walk to the lagoon near Breakers Hotel .



Umdloti further North is also very special.

KNYSNA fabric range - Boats of Kynsna.

Knysna is my very favourite place to be when the sun sets.  Leisure Isle has a beautiful dog friendly park overlooking the lagoon and the birds come settle before going off for the night. Every evening presents everchanging hues and tones in the sky.







These images are all available as prints - you will need to email me your size and shape requirements .
