This is my art. I enjoy using Fynbos flowers as themes in my art making. Fynbos seeds need to be scorched by natural fires from time to time to produce a better flower in the next year. We, as humans, also need to be purified by God’s fire - to flower for Him. I also enjoy to draw aloe plants. Aloes are hardy plants with healing properties. The flowers remind me of orange fiery chandeliers (holy fire) - that provides light. Other themes include thorn trees and artichokes in various media.
