Short-term objectives of the project: 
NHM short-term objectives: 1. Mentorship Programme: Artists and Artisans The Mentorship programme is staggered over the total period of 10 months and is divided into 3 tiers of expertise. Participants will be able to use their new experience and skills to either continue working on the project into the future or apply for employment elsewhere. The mentorship programme will be designed and run by a full-time professional person appointed for the duration of the Project. • Artisan Level: This level is aimed at unskilled individuals who display an interest in this field of work. Participants are mentored as artisans and tradespeople by the foundries and professional artists. Skills could include welding, foundry work, basic material and equipment techniques, factory and industrial practice etc. There will be 2 participants, over a period of 6 months • Intermediate Artist and Sculptural Level: This level is aimed at aspirant artists who are not yet in a position to sustain themselves as professional artists. Participants are mentored by professional artists commissioned to complete life-size bronze figures in skills such as basic sculptural techniques, methods and materials, anatomy, bronze casting etc. There will be 1-2 Participants, over a period of 3- 4 months • Semi-professional Artist and Sculptural Level: This level is aimed at practising artists whose skills and experience are not yet developed enough to allow them to undertake a full commission of the life-size bronze figures for the National Heritage Monument. They will be assisted and mentored by a professional artist to enable them to complete a bronze figure under guidance. There would be a focus on skills such as materials and methods, anatomy, portraiture, subject research, international best practice, artistic interpretation etc. Training at this level would be boosted by collaborations with academic institutions and participation in masterclasses and workshops. There will be 1 -2 Participants, over a timeframe of 3-4 Months 2. Commissioning and Completion of the additional 2 Life Size Bronze Figures, as part of the ‘Long March to Freedom’ at the heart of the National Heritage Monument • Research, calls for proposals and submissions, commissioning of artists, design and completion of marquettes, casting, completion and installation of 2 life-size bronze figures as per the budget line items and information contained in the supporting documentation. 3. Utilisation of labour for the maintenance and installation of the figures at Fountains Valley Over the 10 month period of the Project, labour will be utilised at the Fountains Valley site for maintenance, operational management and undertake the tasks related to installation. The installations will be under the direction of a specialist foundry contractor. 4. Training of Tour Guides Five tour guides will be trained to work at the Fountains Valley

Long-term objectives of the project: 
The main artistic objective is to create a monumental procession of more than 500 life-size bronze figures of world-class standard, using artists and foundries throughout South Africa. The works represent individuals from different eras and epochs from South Africa’s diverse liberation history, but each work stands alone as an individual and challenging artwork. The NHM will: • be a powerful celebration of the South African Struggle for Democracy; • be an iconic national heritage and tourism initiative; • create and showcase artistic and aesthetic beauty; • be a primary "must-see" attraction for domestic and foreign tourists; • be a local recreational, educational and research resource; • be a major contributor to the local economy; • contribute to nation building and national pride.

4.2 Brief summary of the project: 
The National Heritage Monument is a new and extensive urban public development and prominent South African heritage initiative, to be located in the City of Tshwane. It is conceived as an iconic National Heritage and Tourism attraction, established and operated through the agency of the National Heritage Project Company, under the custodianship of the Department of Arts and Culture, and in collaboration with the City of Tshwane. At the heart of the National Heritage Monument concept is the ‘spine’ of the ‘Long March to Freedom’: a monumental procession situated in park-like surroundings of some 400 life-size bronze representations of specific individuals from all eras and epochs of South Africa’s history. It will be a unique historical and artistic dialogue, leading national asset and a ‘must see’ national and international tourism destination. The resulting sculptural narrative will be revisionist in structure and will engage the complexities of South African history, and search for and address the absent voices substantive in the shaping of the South Africa of today.
4.3 Local context and complementarity of the project with other regional, national and local policies/ measures/ programmes/ projects: 
The challenges and priorities in the Gauteng Province is job creation. The development of the National Heritage Monument answers the requirements of the Expanded Public Works Programme: ‘Social Responsibility Programme’. The Department of Tourism is mandated to lead this programme in the environment and culture sector. The programme focuses on ‘the creation of temporary employment and skills development opportunities for unemployed people. This is achieved through the implementation of labour intensive projects under the auspices of the EPWP. The NHM is anticipated to generate a number of quantifiable and qualitative socio-economic benefits which will especially impact on the communities living in close proximity to the NHM site. o The labour intensive nature of the art processes will ensure that the project creates a significant contribution to individual and community empowerment through skills development, thereby promoting local economic development and poverty alleviation, and the development and training of artists; o Components of the site development and water world construction are particularly labour intensive and will employ low skilled and unemployed members of the community. o The on-going operation of the NHM will generate sustainable employment into the future and contribute to the local and national GDP. o The NHM Business Plan and Operational Model indicates that the employment of permanent and temporary staff and labour during both the development and operational phases of the NHM will run into many 1000s.

Phase 1a of the National Heritage Monument included the commissioning of the first group of 56 bronze figures from professional South African sculptors, as well as the extensive research process to source information and reference material on the individuals depicted. The Project Team worked very closely with the artists, their teams and foundries, to achieve the integrity and historical accuracy of the individuals depicted, and to ensure the quality of the completed work was in keeping with the vision of the NHM as a world-class heritage and tourism attraction. Aspiring artists and technicians are also being up-skilled through a mentorship programme as the works are being developed. 24 figures were installed as a temporary exhibition in the grounds of the Oliewenhuis Art Museum, Bloemfontein, from where the project was first introduced to the public on 27 February 2013. In September 2015 the full 56 works completed to date were installed and launched at Fountains Valley, Pretoria. Another 60 works are currently underway and will be added to the 56 works at Fountains Valley early 2017. Funding has to date come from generous grants from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, the Department of Arts and Culture, and the Department of Tourism. As custodian of the National Heritage Monument the Department of Arts and Culture will work with the National Heritage Project Company to facilitate the aims of the development to become a leading South African heritage initiative, and meaningful opportunity for job creation and point of skills transfer. The final development is intended as a primary destination for domestic and foreign tourists alike, and a powerful celebration of the South African Struggle for Democracy.

  2. Developing diverse funding sources – including grants, fees for services, volunteers, donations, active fundraising campaigns, etc.;
  3. Being flexible – capacity to accommodate change by incorporating on-going evaluation into project evaluation.
What measures/steps will you put in place to ensure that your project long-term objectives can be met? : 
Developments to date, and specifically the creation of the existing life-size bronze figures, have been carried out by the National Heritage Project Company under the custodianship of the Department of Arts and Culture. Funding has also been received from the Department of Tourism and the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund. The National Heritage Monument will ultimately be a national flagship project, operated by the National Heritage Project Company, in partnership with the City of Tshwane and the Department of Arts and Culture. The NHM project and project progress has over the past few years been presented to numerous government departments and other institutions and enjoys the endorsement of: • The Presidency • The Minister and Department of Arts and Culture • The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee for Arts and Culture • The Minister and Department of Tourism • The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee for Tourism • The National House of Traditional Leaders • The Premier of Gauteng • The MEC for Sports, Arts, Culture & Recreation, Gauteng • The Mayor and Council of the City of Tshwane • The Gauteng Tourism Authority • Brand SA The NHM project will pursue further engagement with both public and private organisations for funding and partnership/collaborations to ensure sustainability of the project.
What measures/steps will you take to follow up with the beneficiaries of the project after its completion?: 
The National Heritage Monument endeavors at all times to ensure increased participation and ownership by artisans and aspiring artisans that are part of the programme in order to guarantee sustained ongoing communication and feedback method. Over the ten (10) months leading up to the completion of the proposed bronze figures and post production, we have a series of joint gatherings discussing and giving creative design input. The feedback obtained on both the positive elements as well as the challenges experienced by artisans is collected in a manner that allows us to use it effectively going forward and in the periodic gatherings in preparation for the next commissioning of bronze figures. This process contributes positively towards the sustainable longevity of the NHM embracing artists as key stakeholders along with government, funders and City of Tshwane. As stakeholders, they feel strongly that NHM is theirs, part of their life, something they appreciate, enjoy, welcome and value. Post production, Funders and Stakeholders get a detailed report. This information is fed into ongoing annual and quarterly strategic discussions.

Marina is a full time a sculptor, living in Johannesburg, South Africa. She manufactures a range of exclusive and original ornaments for game lodges and interior designers. This work is often featured and represented in interior design and other social magazines. In 2009 she created a larger-than-life memorial to Walter and Albertina Sisulu, which stands in Diagonal street, Newtown, Johannesburg, South Africa. Subsequently she has been commissioned to do portraits of the Mayor of Johannesburg and created a life size bronze portrait of an historical figure , Bishop Colenso for the National Heritage Monument. Since 2005 she has participated in annual trade shows such as the Design Indaba in Cape Town and Ambiente in Germany and group exhibitions with Galleries such as Carol Lee Fine Art and Art Festivals throughout South Africa. She is one of few people that teaches sculpture privately. Her ceramic work has been largely inspired by a need to create a contemporary African design aesthetic, whilst her bronze and sandstone sculptures explore the human form in pivotal poses frozen in action. She continues to push the boundaries of sculpture combining materials in an original and challenging way. You can see her work on her website www.marinawalshdesigns.co.za

Qualified Goldsmith for the last 35 yrs. Sculptures fascinated me from a very early age. When I was 4 yrs old I would sit with my Grandmother in her room and make various animals, creatures, people, in my coloured plastithine. My father told me that she used to tell him,"this boy will one day be an artist" I never got to thank her for her support. 12 yrs ago, I got tired and bored with the jewellery, and went with my heart, and started doing table sized sculptures. I then moved to the KZN, Midlands, where I now reside on Terlings Farm, Balgowan. Belonging to the Suzman Family. The late "Helen Suzman" I was fortunate to meet Dali Tambo and the NHP 2 and a half years ago and received commissions to do lifesize sculptures of "Chief Dalasile" Xhosa Chief of the Quati clan and the great "King Mzilikazi " bull elephant of the Matabele .

Skills/background/qualifications: 
Keith Calder was born in 1959 in the small town of Cradock, South Africa. From his youth, the life of this sculptor has been inextricably linked to wilderness and its creatures, a link that forms the essence of his sculptures. On completing school in Johannesburg, he undertook a diploma in nature conservation and spent the next ten years in that field, working throughout Southern Africa. Whilst working in the northern Kruger Park he contracted malaria. During his recuperation he started to explore his interest in sculpture. He spent a month sculpting and modeling in clay. That month marked a year of transition for him as he vacillated between his commitment to conservation and a possible career in the arts. He spent much of his free time honing his skills as a sculptor. In 1987 the decision to leave the bush and become a sculptor was made easier when he received his first important commission from St Stithians College in Johannesburg: a herd of nine elephants in bronze ( 3m x 1m x 0.5m ) symbolizing the college motto ‘one and all’. Calder’s work ranges from miniatures to life-size to monumental sculptures and is well represented in institutions and corporations throughout South Africa. His style is instantly recognizable by its realism and his ability to capture the character of his subjects stems from his intimate knowledge of them. “ To be able to draw upon the power and beauty of wild things and portray them in sculpture is a great privilege for me. Perhaps they symbolize our purer selves or jolt our deep seated ancestral memory of when we once lived closer to the earth” In 2002 Calder began to search alternative way to sculpt the human and animal form. He extended lines, expanded planes, reduced texture, detail and sentimentality while still maintaining a loyalty to natural form. The sculptures that emerged are difficult to define stylistically. There are elements of the abstract, cubism and futurism. Some have an almost stylized art deco feel but are all immediately recognizable as a “Keith Calder” His most recent large work in this style is of a larger than life-size leopard entitled “Vindicta”. With this piece he has used varying textures and metal degradation which speaks about imperfections in perfection or “Wabi Sabi”. An ancient Chinese philosophy referring to the beauty of imperfection in man-made objects. More recently, he has been sculpting the human and animal form in a realistic manner. Many of these are of dancers and others are metaphors for the human experience through the use of the animal and the human in one sculpture. “ Working in these two very different styles allows me to move between reality and fantasy. The one, reality, requires a fairly disciplined interpretation of form while the other allows me greater freedom and a less sentimental way of expressing my work”. Find me on www.keithcalder.co.za

Skills/background/qualifications: 
Renowned South African sculptor Helena Vogelzang is inspired by her country’s rich, diverse and colourful heritage. Born with Africa in her blood its people and wildlife have had a profound influence on her work and are a constant source of reference. Schooled from a young age in the arts, she graduated with distinction at the National School of Arts in Johannesburg SA. Where she discovered the wonder of Augusta Rodin and was inspired by figurative sculptor Anton van Wouw, widely regarded as the father of South African sculpture, who introduced the tradition of investment bronze casting to the continent from Italy in the 1900’s. Qualified as a Graphic designer she has applied these skills to expand on the fine art of sculpture. Helena has chosen sculpture as her primary form of artistic expression. Helena is compelled by the three dimensional values of form exploring the contours, texture and light of her subjects seeking to reveal the “universal light that is within all things”. Thus striving to capture that intangible fourth dimension that gives her sculptures soul. “My goal is to capture the essence of a subject, to evoke emotion in the viewer.” For Helena this is an ongoing adventure of exploration, endeavouring to find a window of expression and interpreting it. Sculpture poses the challenge of capturing movement and harnessing emotion in the static restrictions of a given medium. She is ever mindful that a truly new idea is a rare and elusive thing. As Auguste Rodin expressed with this ethos - "I invent nothing. I rediscover" With exacting demands her artworks are modelled and reproduced with fine technical skill, and created to the highest standards while honouring the timeless tradition of the ancient bronze casting process. The complex nature of each works enduring, primal genesis is a constant fascination for Helena..."My creative imaginings emerge from the alchemy of the bronzing process in solid form." – HELENA VOGELZANG 2013 Sculpted with soul - Helena is a cognisant and intuitive artist creating artworks with great depth and dimension.

Louis Olivier is a sculptor based in Johannesburg. Born in 1976, in Vereeniging, he grew up in Bethal in Mpumalanga. He graduated with a degree in Information Technology from the University of Pretoria in 1998. His art explores the condition of man, our existence and the question of the after life and mortality. He works in various media such as sculpture, drawing and installations. He uses the body as a platform for the known, the unknown, the invisible, the tangible and the mystery of humanity where the viewer can reflect the space we live in flesh and spirit. Olivier's sculpture and drawings deconstructs the figure, investigating the pieces individually then reconstructs the form with a variety of materials, playing on the physical and material environment in which we find ourselves. Moulds are used from "life casts" and reconstructed within a limited space. He is not interested in the exterior figure but what fills the interior, especially the hidden sections of the body. The mystery of the unknown is an important part of the investigation and it is only when the piece has been completely reworked that the answer can be found. Olivier worked in the IT field for three years and then made a dramatic career change in 2001, to work as a fulltime artist. The challenge of using the traditional figure, creates a sense of anxiety in the artist. "There is temptation to move to other topics but I do not feel I have given the subject thorough investigation, so I continue in the quest," explains Olivier.The artist has done corporate commissions for Sasol and Rand Merchant Bank. He created the Sandton Benchmark Project which consists of two life size bronze figures sitting on a public bench. In 2009, Olivier formed part of the Artspace Mentor-ship Program and was mentored by the established artist Wilma Cruise. He now lives and works in Johannesburg after moving his studio from Pretoria in 2012 to establish Workhorse, a bronze foundry and art studio.

During this time he also worked as a philatelic illustrator for the GPO designing award winning stamps and First Day Covers for RSA and Namibia. While commissions from the advertising industry and the GPO paid the bills the desire to create his own art persisted and he discovered an interest in sculpture, knowing immediately that this was what he should do. However sculpture being a very difficult career to get established in he worked both careers simultaneously for many years until confident enough to drop the illustration and concentrate his time fully on sculpture. He has been a full time sculptor for almost 20 years. His sculpture style is described by galleries as representational or as he prefers to call It, realistic. The subjects vary from wildlife to figure work to ethnic Africa with the San people of Southern Africa a particular favourite.

He works directly from live models creating forms in clay that he then casts in bronze. By leaving bumps and imperfections unresolved, Haupt highlights the casting process, making his work as much about the transparency of method as it is about the human figure.

Born in Evander, 1975. Lives and works in Cape Town. Andre attended the Pro Arte School of arts in Pretoria (1989 – 1993) where he majored in painting and graphics. He flourished at art from an early age and won various merits and awards, including work being selected for the Iscor Permanent Art Collection. Andre studied in several artistic disciplines including painting, sculpture, jewellery making, graphic and packaging design. In 1994 he moved to Cape Town where he trained in metal work (forging, welding and metallurgical theory) under the direction of John Allesandri. While working at the Doyle Art Foundry (1997-1998) he became familiar with the moulding and bronze casting process. During 2001 he started to work at the Bronze Age Art Foundry where he became efficient in all the various stages of the lost-wax casting process (cire perdue) over the next few years. Within three years he become a partner at the Bronze Age Art Foundry (2004 – 2007) and excelled in the production and business aspects of bronze sculpture. Andre played an integral part in the arranging and execution of various art exhibitions and trade shows. He worked with renowned artists such as Maureen Quin (friend and mentor), Keith Calder, Dylan Lewis, Donald Greig and Beezy Bailey, which helped refine his technical and artistic approach. To encourage bronze sculpturing as an art form he developed a foundry sculpture course, which taught students all the various aspects of bronze sculpture production. During 2007 Andre was commissioned to create nine large bronze relief panels to be laid into marble floors of the Burj Dubai Development in Dubai (tallest man-made structure in the world). In 2008 Stead created a series of figurative studies of the female form. In 2009 Stead showcased the Female series (realistic bronze figures) in two solo exhibitions in Cape Town and Johannesburg. During 2010 works from the female series were exhibited in various group shows in South Africa. In 2010 Stead started working on the Anamorphic series launching it with a solo exhibition in August 2011 in Franschhoek at IS ART gallery. His latest work focuses on pure form derived from the human figure and has already drawn significant attention from art dealers and collectors alike. In 2011 Stead was commissioned by Laurence Graff to create a sculptural installation, “Flight of the Swallows” for the Indochine restaurant at the Delaire Graff Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Other projects during 2011 include the installation of the “Large Reclining Figure”, a three meter version of the anamorphic series figure. In early 2012 Stead produced the “Oxford Swallows”, a smaller yet completely unique version of the stainless steel and perspex installation at Delaire. His solo exhibition, “Illumination”, showcased in July 2012 at the Christopher Møller Art Gallery in Cape Town. During 2013 Stead participated in the Woordfees exhibition “Heavenly” in Stellenbosch followed by his solo exhibition “Elemental man” at the Knysna Fine art gallery. He is currently working on various installation projects as well as his next large solo show due to open November 2014.

He flourished at art from an early age and received various merits and awards, including selection for the Iscor Permanent Art Collection. Andre is proficient in several artistic disciplines including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking and graphic design. In 1994 Andre started exploring sculpture as an artistic outlet and received training in forging, welding and metallurgy under the direction of John Allesandri. The following years Stead spent most of his time carving wooden figures and refining his skills in metalwork, creating unique artworks and functional art pieces. His first solo exhibition took place at the Novalis institute in Cape Town early in 1998. The urge to learn as much as possible about sculptural processes lead Andre to working at the Doyle Art Foundry where he quickly became well versed with the and casting processes. In 1999 Andre teamed up with Otto du Plessis, an old art school friend, at the Bronze Age Art Foundry to help develop the business and refine the processes involved. He also started a foundry course that allowed student to experience the casting process themselves and encouraged sculpture as an art form in general. By 2007 Andre had learned all the foundry had to offer him and started working full time as an artist. His first large commission was to create nine large bronze relief panels for the Burj Khalifa (tallest man-made structure in the world) development in Dubai. The following year Stead created a series of female bronze sculptures that were launched by the Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate at the 2009 Good Food and Wine Show in Cape Town. In October 2009 Andre Stead and Lionel Smit took part in the “Identity” exhibition at Platform on 18th Gallery in Pretoria.In 2010 Andre started working on the anamorphic series and created a large body of contemporary sculptural works that were first showcased on his solo exhibition “Evolution”, at the Is Art Gallery in Franschhoek in 2011. Later that year Andre was commissioned by Lawrence Graff to create a large scale sculptural installation for the Indochine restaurant at the Delaire Graff Estate in Stellenbosch. The "Flight of the Swallows" have become a well-known artwork at the Graff Delaire Estate for its impressive scale and innate beauty. The Swallows Project opened a whole new avenue and the use of stainless steel and plexiglass became a new dimension in sculpture to explore. In the next three years Andre would do a number of international installations such as the Oxford Swallows and the Fountain of youth in the United Kingdome and the Koi Fish Installation in Singapore. Other work during this period include the first large pieces from the anamorphic series such as the "Large Reclining Figure", a three meter version of the original sculpture. In July 2012 Steads opened his solo exhibition “Illumination”, at the Christopher Møller Art Gallery in Cape Town followed by his solo exhibition “Elemental man” at the Knysna Fine art gallery in 2013. Andre has participated in the Cape Town Art Fair since it started in 2013. His recent solo exhibition, “The Emergence of Man” (2014), at the Christopher Møller art Gallery, Cape Town was very well received as he continues to push the boundary of contemporary South African sculpture.

My Parents left South Africa for England in the 1970’s for political reasons. I was subsequently born near Glastonbury- England, 0n the 2nd Dec 1976. We returned as a family in the late 1980’s in support of the imminent positive change in the Country. Back in South Africa, I grew up in the Hills of Shongweni- KZN, in a Home where both my Parents are Artists. Encouraged with this as a background, I have created Sculpture and Art my whole life. It really is in my Bones. Upon moving to joburg in 2004, I taught Art & Sculpture at Parktown College. Since 2006, I co-formed/own and run a Sculpture and Art studio- Space Alchemy- in JHB, with Business partner Carl Maritz. Our employed junior Sculptors are Bongani Nyoni, Richard Makhuva and Hloai Mahlope Artist Profile / statement With Sculptural Portraiture, in addition to accuracy of features and form rendering, I strive to capture, and portray the Soul or Essence of my subject. This is enormously relevant in my Portraiture as I believe the work should not only show a likeness, but also portray an energy, a presence- to elicit an emotion or feeling from the viewer. I study my subject matter, not only on physical appearance, but Historical relevance, personality etc. As an example, I listened to Giuseppe Verdi’s music constantly for weeks while conceptualising and sculpting the commission of his bust. This helped to create a portrait that I felt to be authentic. For me, my most meaningful of Portraits was of Madiba. I feel I have shown his wisdom, kindness and love, but also with an undertone of his strong will. Professional Artist Training Bachelor Arts Fine Art- Sculpture. Philosophy. Drama. Graduated 1998 University of Natal PMB. Subsequently, I am constantly involved with, and studying the vast realm of sculpture. For me, the delicate detail and subtle emotion of Michaelangelo’s work and the power and moment in time character and raw emotion of Rodin, are two sculptors I return to time and again for inspiration. I am in love with this discipline, to the extent that in grd 11 and 12, I was the only student permitted by the Board to submit my final works in the medium of Sculpture. Artistic Achievement • London. Skylark Gallery. 1998 • Durban. ‘Circus of the Sun’. Coppin Johnson Gallery. 2001 • JHB. Gordart Gallery. 2004 • JHB. Cool Art Gallery. 2009 • Grahamstown Festival. ‘African Heartbeat’. 2011 Additional works that have been purchased are currently exhibited in the Spanish Consulate, Arts and Culture Building, Pellerade Design amongst others. I taught Sculpture and Drawing at Parktown College in 2004, and developed a rich and rewarding artistic rapport with my Students. Subsequent to this I began my business of Space Alchemy. This is where I have had the opportunity and Studio space to further the scale of commissions and use this platform to accumulate a large knowledge and application of the technical elements of sculpture. With my dedicated and gifted assistant junior Sculptors of 6 years, the reciprocal growth has and continues to be a highly rewarding experience, and one that is a contributing factor to the continuing quality of commissions undertaken. www.spacealchemy.co.za

PROFILE I was born in the U.K. but have spent most of my life in South Africa. I was fortunate enough to go to a school where art was one of the subjects I could take, so my love for art started to grow at a early age. In the mid to late 90’s I had the privilege of working with Dylan Lewis at his art studio where I received an invaluable background too art, I would have never received anywhere else, While working at Dylan’s studio and foundry as his assistant I also attended classes at the Ruth Prose art school for three years. In 1998 I started my own art foundry casting bronze sculptures for not only Dylan Lewis but for dozens of other professional artists Over the years I have made a number of my own sculptures which have been sold in galleries around the Cape. It’s been a great privilege to work on this NHP project with Roger September and I look foreword to possibly doing more such projects in the future with him.

As a young primary scholar I have always been interested in art and being creative though I never knew that art is such a big world on its own until I met with the true reality of its existence in 2004 when I've been given the privilege to work at an art foundry. In 2010 the desire and passion to do art gave birth inside of me and I've felt complete fulfilled up until now. I realised that this is my creative destiny. I then decided to go over into action and made my first sculpture which I call "genesis". For ten years at the foundry I'm honoured and privileged to work with a lot of well-known artists such as Keith Calder, Louis Chanu, Dylan Lewis, Alan Ainslie and many more as I perform the quality controlling on their workpieces which unlocked a whole new understanding of art inside of me.

Skills/background/qualifications: 
I began sculpting around 1996 and quickly found an affinity for creating realistic animals, figures and portraits. Initially working in ceramic clay, later attended the Central St Martins (London) 2000 summer program, focusing on the process of bronze casting. Since then I have worked in ceramic, bronze, steel, pewter and have also produced detailed pieces in cement. Though I had little subsequent formal training, I developed both technical skills and conceptual understanding of sculpture by working closely with leading figures in South African art. Since 2002 I have been privileged tosculpt many commissioned pieces under the direction of Jean Doyle, as well as assisting her on a number of sculptures, some of which were of monumental scale. I also completed a life modeling course at Ruth Prowse School of Art, annual workshops with Jill Trappler, and in 2009 I attended a Masterclass in Portrait Sculpture in Devon, UK with leading portraiture artist, Luke Shepherd. From 2011 to 2012 I was engaged in a mentorship program with Wilma Cruise, exploring the place of figurative sculpture in contemporary art. My artistic focus is on closely observed, lifelike studies that convey the empathy I feel with my subjects. Whether national leader or manual labourer, I am drawn to quiet dignity and try to convey this in each of my portraits. Bolder statements of character are often expressed in fleeting facial expressions or easily overlooked gestures, and it is these subtleties that I try to observe and capture. 10 years working on diverse commissioned and monumental pieces have given me solid experience and practice at modeling, as well as the knowledge and confidence to tackle projects with challenging subjects, from life size to over 6m tall.
