UNTAMED visitor reviews
Your words resonate very deeply with me and the sentiments you express through your poetry are very close to my own, although more eloquently articulated than I could ever manage.

Totally inspired by the sculptures and poetry.
I was moved and inspired your joint exhibition with Dylan Lewis.
Your poetry and exhibition in Kirstenbosch is etched on my mind…great art and therapy.
I love them. I’m so glad I have been to Africa as this enabled me to connect with the poems on a different level than would have previously been possible. I love “Walkabout” – very Australian title and I can relate to the journey!!
We were deeply moved by the ‘Untamed’ exhibition, and particularly by your poetry.
