At a young age the ocean provided me with much comfort during a stormy childhood. I would visit the ocean every year and long to be part of it. The jellyfish are timeless, suspended in beauty and grace. In Monterey, California I spent much time watching them at the aquarium, spellbound by their majestic movement and delicate serenity. Today I am a ground crew member of Sea Shepherd, an organization dedicated to saving our oceans. Beautiful Strangers is for sale (limited edition replicas of various sizes can also be created). 20% of proceeds will go to Sea Shepherd (Virginia, USA).
Originally from South Africa, I came to the USA in 2006. Today I am the proud owner of the Avianne International Gallery of Fine Art in Boise (1883 N Wildwood Street #M, Boise, ID 83713) – please check our Google listing for more details. In addition, I recently became the vice-president of the organization responsible for the fabulous exhibition you are now enjoying: TVAA. I am a seasoned professional artist, who has won numerous awards for my work, included in many corporate and private collections, internationally. My art supports humanitarian, animal rescue, and wildlife conservation efforts globally.
