Why so quiet?


Silence is only when we sleep.
Or do you dream in sound?

The bustle of the day fills my ears from the moment I wake. Traffic, birds, pets and people talking. There is no silence or quiet.

For the past months my life journey has taken many new turns, with a multitude of questions asked, answered and unanswered and even more moments of intense beauty. It is in these individual moments of acute awareness that I find strength, inspiration and love. In them I am truly alive.

Only a short while ago I was exploring the cultural richness of Mexico. Now I am immersing myself in my own and my birthplace’s history. Rediscovering languages, places, people and passions. We are never separate from our past. Embedded irrevocably in our beings are the memories, emotions and thoughts from the past; many subconscious but still part of us. Waiting for the right moment to reemerge in rich colours, sounds and smells.

As I sit under a skeleton tree that is starting to push out small leaf buds in preparation for spring, listening to the birds happily chirping and enjoying an apple I put out for them earlier, I am thankful for all the creative minds that surround me. Yes, the creative journey continues as it always has.

I will be exhibiting Wearable Art as part of a collaborative effort with some truly inspirational (South) African artists later this year. Working in two and three dimensions, around eight of us have started our joint creative explorations and I am privileged to be part of such a dynamic group.

Pretty soon I will be able to announce the names of the participating artists. You’ll be introduced to this special group and can follow our journey to exceptional artworks. In the meantime, keep a look out for posts on Facebook and Instagram and be part of our journey!

 

Wearable Art moves to Mexico!


Dear Wearable Art friends

Things often change more quickly or more slowly than we are ready for. During the past year I have accompanied many wonderful women on creative jewellery journeys, made many unique miniature landscapes and explored new technical avenues.

But now it’s time for a change.

Exciting times

In early 2018 I will arrive in my new home in Mexico. San Miguel de Allende to be more specific! It’s an artists’ town and I can’t wait to begin exploring. Time to immerse myself in a new world!

While an intercontinental move is a massive change in one’s life, it’s a change that I am very positive and excited about. Mexico is a colorful and culturally rich country; full of promise and mystery.

Already I look forward to discovering new sources of inspiration, exploring a beautiful natural world and connecting with amazing people. With so many amazing artists, past and present, it is bound to be a significant time of creative growth for me.

You’ll find blogs and news on my adventure here on my website. Keep coming back to read them and share my experience.

A word of Thanks

Especially important are the people that supported me during my time in Europe. Some more active (my beautiful customers, my technical and emotional supporters), while others stayed in the background more often. While I hope our strong bond will stay, I realize that some of you may drift away somewhat.

So, to all of you, thank you! Without you I wouldn’t have the energy to do this. Most likely, it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as it is.

Please stay in touch – this is simply a detour until we meet again.
