Another 2 days …

After today another 2 days of Stanford Local Harvest but this Sunday 19 July it’s over. The exhibition of local artists from Stanford, South Africa attracted an additional number of guests to our restaurant as well. Not only local but also day trippers from as far away as Cape Town (125 km) and Worcester (140 km). More important is that some works have been sold and thanks to a social media buzz the artists and their work have been brought under the attention of many art lovers within South Africa and abroad. Anyway this is the last posting about this art exhibition.

Marian Binder“Having painted and created most of my life in various media, I became passionate about botanical watercolour as a pupil of Ann Harris almost a decade ago. This collection of traditional botanical watercolours is on Arches 300 hot-pressed paper, a wonderfully forgiving linen paper. More recently I’ve been exploring painting on canvas with acrylics and oils – in a somewhat less representational style than the botanical studies.” – Marian Binder

SH-nicolette-ross“I started my artistic learnings when I did various flower arranging courses with Joan Pare at the Constantia School of Floristry. I them learned Decoupage, using different mediums namely wood, glass and material. In enjoy using tiny scissors to cut intricate designs. In 2011 I started doing water colours with Barbi Vanderwalle in Fish Hoek. In September 2012 I started water colour lessons with Estelle Valkenberg in Onrust. I am enjoying the challenge of water colours, being the most difficult medium to work with, so they say.”

sh-jeanjonker1“I was born, on the 2 August 1976,in Pretoria to a creative family of painters & musician. You might say its in the blood. From a young age I was always panting and drawing to keep myself busy. I attended Die Kruin (Afrikaans Art School) in Johannesburg which eventually became one with The National School of the Arts in Braamfontein Johannesburg. Here I had painting, drawing and graphics as my main art subjects. Here also the love of print became clear to me and the love of history. I have an even greater love for my two children, Dylan 16 and my daughter Jade 11. After a life threatening event two years ago I realised that my creative energy had to be revived and I knew that the greatest happiness for me is to be an artist, to be surrounded by kaleidoscope of colour, scenes, beauty and to be alive. I have recently brushed up on my printing and I am happy to wake up each morning with the beauty of a Stanford sunrise, to be active as an artist, spend time with my children watch them grow, walk my dogs next to the river and happy to still be alive to witness the sunset everyday. I you would like to contact me I can be reached at jeanjonker@gmail.com or on my Facebook page Jean’s art & nursery. I am busy setting up a website which will be up and running by the end of the year.”  – Jean Jonker.
