My daughter Jess, had to complete several pieces of art for her matric practical exam. This picture is of a spaza shop, she took photos of different images in the streets of Pitermaritzburg. I love the way she has caught the motion of the man looking inside the boxes of fruit for sale. This is a real African sence, full of colour.

This was the second order I got for a whole consignment of bags and chickens. It has inspired me to continue creating for profit. I always felt that not having a 'real' job was not quite the done thing, until I got a 'real' job as a teacher and then making stuff seemed a far better idea.
My daughter Jess wanted to give her friend a special gift for her 18th birthday. She wanted it to be something that would remind her of their last year at school. We decided that a cushion would be a good idea. Jess chose the fabric and the pics to go on the cushion.
Mom then completed the project and one very unique gift was the result.
