Create Christmas Presents in Cape Town

Remember I posted a bit of information about Doodle Creative Space? Based walking distance from where I stay in Cape Town it's the ideal spot to go and create something pretty in a comfortable, well lit space with all the right materials and tools well within reach.

This year I'm making even more of an effort to do handmade Christmas gifts (instead of leaving everything to the last minute as I usually do, I'm trying to finish them much earlier).

I think that making something beautiful or functional for someone is much more special, personal and unique than buying something. It shows that you put in effort, thought, energy and nurturing into the gift, and essentially you are "giving" a bit of yourself! I mos believe that anything that you bring into being through your own creativity and handiwork is an expression of yourself. So... back to Doodle Creative Space - you can choose from a selection of options and easily make 3 unique and beautiful presents for R350 – R400 during November and December. Some other workshops that they're running this month are:

19 Nov – Making Christmas cards and a present for your loved ones.
26 November – Making Christmas table decorations.

You can also spoil a creative loved one with a voucher!
Book a space, buy a voucher or find out more by contacting or go to

Alternatively, you are MORE than welcome, of course, to buy some of my artworks as gifts for your loved ones, or commission me to make some art-, illustration- or craft-works. These are some artworks currently available for sale. To see more available works, go to my State of the Art gallery (, or if you're in Cape Town, meet up with me to see smaller works not available on the website. Email me at

the wind rushing through time

the rush of the wind through the leaves
with the sound of your heart underneath
the warmth of the sun on your skin
with the grass growing wildly at your feet

the season changes swiftly in the mountain
while the rock lies peacefully in the stream
and the colours burn orange in the forest
while we drift along in the flurry of life
