These pieces have been made to be sent  to Debs Digby and the Art of Africa Gallery , Buckinghamshire, UK. I was so fortunate to meet Debs on her annual buying trip to Cape Town, and am chuffed beyond belief to have work in her gallery!

An excerpt from her website can explain the gallery far better than I:

“Art of Africa was founded in January 1991 by Zimbabwean Deborah Norman, in Walton Street, London. After three happy years, marriage and an impending baby saw it relocate to its present location at Fillingdon Farm, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire.

Since 1994, Art of Africa has annually presented two large mixed group exhibitions, in May/June and November at Fillingdon Farm, and is open by appointment for the remainder of the year. Each exhibition opens on a Saturday and runs for nine days until the end of the following Sunday, from 10am – 5pm.

Every exhibition is a combination of work by both new and familiar artists, with two common threads. Firstly, each artist has a link with Africa; most live there, but some travel out to paint or sculpt. Secondly, all work is original handcraft, made where possible from the natural materials for which Africa is famed; stone, silver, cotton, clay, wood, mohair, leather etc.”
