Vincent and Douglas by JolanteHesse

Charcoal, 48×38cm
My father (with the monocle) and his broadcasting partner – Vincent Hesse and Douglas Laws.
In the 60’s, before TV arrived in South Africa, they were radio broadcasting partners on a South African radio show, Springbok Radio. The were both a bit crazy…
From a tiny press photograph.

Some years ago I survived a serious attack on my life. During the year of recovery, I did two drawings and found the activity both calming and exciting.
I am studying under Leon Fourie.
I have simplified my life completely and now paint full time.

Art for me, is an intensely personal expression of how I appreciate and perceive life and people.
