About the Artwork


This was a reworking of a life figure drawing that I created during a workshop at Firefly Studio with Pauline Gutter & Dina Grobler.

The changes that I made was inspired by both titled suggestions made by my beautiful followers (some of your suggestions is in the writing!). As well as one of my favourite Bible verses – Isaiah 49:15

“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”

In the wall writing I added very subtle text which reflects some of God’s feelings towards. Maybe the most visible would be the little writing close to her shoulder on the right hand side that say “God loves you”.

As a Christian, I have to constantly remind myself that I am who God says I am and not the world’s value system which is broken.
