Agot- The Good Hearted
While I was struggling with ‘what did I do to deserve losing my son’ and slowly analyzed my life, I remembered that I have always been kind and followed do good, do no harm. This portrait is inspired by all good-hearted women in this world who love their traditional role and live a simple life.
Agot- the good hearted, is an east European country girl in a traditional headscarf. Her kindness and pride show through her eyes.
Milakuhle- Girl with a heart of gold
In the journey to reconnect with my original self, I created Milakuhle, a south African young girl with a heart of gold. She is sad but determined. She observes life quietly believing that one day she will make it what she wants it to be, on her own!
Portrait of my husband who sacrificed everything to support me and made sure I was never alone in my struggles.
It is a tribute to every man who was brought up in a world where women are traditionally considered subordinate to men but grew up to understand and accept their wives as equal, even assuming a more supportive role in the family while the wives reached for their dreams. To all men with a soft heart underneath their tough exterior
Sharry-The Cruiseship queen
I made this portrait for Sharry as an inspiration to keep working further on a personal milestone that she achieved with a lot of will power and determination. She is a kind and generous woman who genuinely care for everyone around her. She is a natural giver so it was a pleasure to be able to do something back for her!
Kiran – The Queen
Portrait of my sister is a part of the series of female portraits that I created to reconnect with myself. It is dedicated to every woman who struggles to find herself while balancing her traditional and professional roles. She switches between the two in a heartbeat and struggles to keep balance many times in a day, every day.
She is Kiran-The Queen
