A collection of art by artists I love and admire and have some personal connection with. They might be from my hometown, went to school with me or had some influence in my life. I've always been the closet artist who has never quite blossomed, but great art has always taken a special place in my life. I greatly admire people with talent who has the self-discipline and determination to put in the work and become a success.

I met Jesus Fuertes some years ago while working on an exhibition that he was planning for Cape Town, which sadly never materialised. We spent countless hours chatting and he drew me several pen drawings – mostly on napkins and hotel menus. He even did a full scale, signed pen drawing on the back of one of my own paintings that I will cherish forever. I was sad to hear that he passed away a few years ago in 2006. He was a celebrated cubist painter, mentored by Salvador Dalí and Pablo… Pen Drawings, I Am Sad, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Cape Town, Napkins, Scale, My Arts, Paintings

Athene II by South African artist, Bokkie Gerber. I met Bokkie a long, long time ago on a farm in Mpumalanga where he was living at the time. I loved his art then and still do today. His work to me is such a celebration of the feminine form. South African Artists, Long Time Ago, I Love Him, Celebration, Feminine, Women's, Love Him

By Bokkie Gerber, South African Artist. Bokkie once made me a gift portrait of myself which sadly was left behind when I left Mpumalanga. I wonder if it is tucked away in some dark corner of the farm house somewhere. South African Artists, Farm House, Disney Characters, Fictional Characters, My Arts, Corner, Portrait, Dark, Gift
