Hi, I am Maree Clarkson, Artist, Nature Student, gardener, blogger and bird-lover.

Specialising in Safari and Game Lodge décor —

Your one-stop shop for all your Game Lodge décor needs. Safaris and visiting game lodges in South Africa is big business. Get an edge in the industry by drawing guests to your game lodge and tent camp with one-of-a-kind wildlife prints and décor to give them an unforgettable experience of the African bush. You will also find more Lodge décor items in my Wildlife portfolio.

I live on my little piece of African soil, an 8.5ha smallholding in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa, which is situated on the border of The Cradle of Humankind. I’m passionate about sketching and painting, animals, birds, nature, Moleskine note books, the beach, crystals, succulents, useless information, technology, blogging, networking, my MAC, my Land Rover, positivity, gardening and discovering anything new in life!

Living in Africa is something very special and I am constantly delighted, amused and amazed by the things I see, do and experience. Join me in some of these experiences.

Watercolours are my preferred medium. For me, the unpredictability and uncontrollable nature of watercolour makes it the most exciting and expressive medium of all. Having a certain picture in your mind and then seeing something slightly different, yet wonderful, come to life, is a thrilling experience! With watercolours, no two artists can produce the same result, the paint will just not allow you!

I’d like to extend a great big thank you to all you wonderful buyers of my products over the years. Your support is greatly appreciated and here’s to another year together!

•.¸♥♥¸.• QUOTE OF THE WEEK


A thought on change : “I easily flow with change. My life is Divinely guided and I am always going in the best direction.” Read again, “Best direction”, not “right direction”. All my memories are safe. I am ever-thankful for the life I’ve had, all my experiences, the good and the bad.

Does criticism of your art impede your creativity?

Guineafowl in my garden / I’ve taken my talent for sketching and painting pretty much for granted over the years – some people can whistle and some can’t, some people can sew and some can’t – and I’ve never ever worried much about criticism. It doesn’t really touch or affect me. There’s two things that I believe – I believe that beauty is in t…

We’ve been up-loading regularly, followed hundreds of people and gathered a fair amount of followers ourselves. We’ve comment…

What do I miss about my life before the internet…?

It seems that nostalgia is big these days. Everybody is always referring to “the old days” and the other day I was asked whether I don’t miss life before the internet and all the gadgets we are surrounded with these days. / Seriously? Do you want me to tell you that I miss standing in the queue at the bank to deposit money to pay my accounts? Do you want me to tell you that I mi…
