Hermien van der Merwe Art

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.

Hermien Van Der Merwe; These drawings of various Proteas are made in mixed media on paper.  They are displayed in ceramic vases.  The stem of the flower is drawn onto the unglazed vase with graphite that is fired into the ceramic.  The inside of the vase is glazed and can also be used for fresh flowers, if the client prefers to have the drawing framed.
