On show in Greyton

Next to the official launch or the ‘Map of Africa’ I will present numerous other new pieces (next to existing models) in both lines (down to earth & retro) during the Greyton Art Walk this weekend.

The art walk starts Friday at 1 pm (to 6pm) and continues Saturday (10am-5pm) and Sunday (10am-1pm). And as there are many Greytons around the globe I’m talking here about Greyton in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Here a selection of what’s on show:

Profile of my customers

The majority of my customers are not young except by heart. At least 75% is older than 40 and the oldest one I ever sold a piece to was 97!

Today I had two women in my gallery who are well above 60 and they decided to spoil themselves. Good for the business but it’s also a social event that can take a few hours; starting with coffee and homemade truffles. We take the time for it. One of them already bought sometime ago and decided to bring her sister in law. After more than 3 hours socialising and choosing they left with a bag full of unique (limited edition) rings, bracelets and earrings (virtually one for every day of the week).
