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.

    Your portfolio is really amazing and beautiful Jolante, but this artwork expresses the horror that should not be there! I hope that one day these day and night demons that persecute South Africans finally disappear. This is a stunning drawing, expressing pain and terror is not easy.

  • Thanks so much for this incredible comment Constance. It gave me goosebumps!

    How many faces we’ve got here?
    It can be a little disturbing.
    Great work!!!

  • Thanks Isabela! The following day I counted three… (I also find this quite disturbing, but my sister loves it and wanted me to post it, so on redbubble it went!)
