Die wereld is haar speelplek Yzerfontein haar hartsplek ^

Wat dink jy van die SA rolprente, spesifiek die Afrikaanse rolprentbedryf wat nou so ʼn bloei tydperk beleef? Ek is super chuffed met die SA bedryf en die kwaliteit van die rolprente. Ek sien die groei en kan nie wag om binnekort deel te wees daarvan nie. Ek dink SA is besig om sy merk te maak. Nou moet ons net ons (Afrikaanse) movies probeer verkoop kry aan die internasionale mark, soos Europa en Kanada.

Sal dit vir jou rede genoeg wees om in een van die flieks te kom speel? Fotos deur Henré Pretorius

Marguerite Wheatley deur Fanie

D

it is moontlik om ‘n wêreldster te word. Dit het al gebeur. Dit kan net sowel Marguerite Wheatley se naam wees wat in ligte in Hollywood geskryf staan. Haar belangrike rol in die 2009 fliek Invictus het haar juis so naby aan daai droom laat leef. Ons praat van Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon en Morgan Freeman saam met wie sy gewerk en toneelgespeel het in dié internasionale rolprent. As sy direk na die verfilming van Invictus ná Los Angeles gegaan het, toe dié fliek se vlam nog hoog gebrand het, was sy heelmoontlik al heel bo. Onbewus van hoe die dinamika in Hollywood werk en na ’n tyd in Europa is sy eers 3 jaar later Amerika toe. Dis hierdie advies wat Marguerite aan akteurs met oorsese aspirasies gee. Gaan nou, moenie wag nie. Gaan as jy baie jonk is soos 16 of 19, of wanneer die fliek waarin jy was nog aandag trek. Anders is jy net nog een van 108 000 hoopvolles.

Die deurbraak-rol het nog nie vir haar gekom nie, maar haar pad is nog lank nie voltooi nie. En wie weet, die wêreld is tog ons almal se speelplek. Dit kan enige oomblik gebeur. Vir haar dapperheid en moed alleen verdien sy ons respek. En soos hulle in Amerika sal sê You go Girl!

Nadat jy die rol van Nerine Pienaar gespeel het teenoor Matt Damon (Francois) in die fliek, Invictus, was dit maklik om die stap te neem en jouself in Los Angeles te vestig?

Ja beslis, Invictus het gehelp dat ek my EB1 Greencard ontvang van die Amerikaanse regering. EB1 staan vir Extraordinary Ability, wat nogal snaaks is, want ek dink nooit aan akteurs as extraordinary nie.

Cronjé

Het jy eers in Frankryk gewoon vir ʼn ruk? Ja, ek het in Grenoble in die Franse Alpe gewoon vir so twee jaar en voor dit was ek vir ’n jaar in Londen.

Ek het nog altyd gedink dit is ’n baie dapper ding om te doen, om net so jou tasse te pak en jou heil in ‘n ander land te gaan soek.

My transisie LA toe was ongelooflike smooth weens Frank Rautenbach en sy vrou, Leigh. Leigh is my beste maatjie hier en hulle het my met ope arms ontvang. Al hulle vriende het my vriende geword en ek het nog nie ’n dag van isolasie of eensaamheid hier beleef nie. Dis werklik wonderlik en LA is ’n baie gebroke stad met bitter baie eensame mense. Dis a huge stad so ek is baie baie lucky.

Gaan jy vir oudisies?

So dan en wan word ek genooi om te read vir oudisies. Read beteken eintlik oudisie hierso. Ek kon dit eers nie lekker begryp nie, want wat read jy dan?

Wat is ons kanse om dit te maak as akteur in Amerika? Daar is omtrent 108 000 akteurs in LA en 21 000 werkende akteurs. Maak die som. Dis tough ja.

Bel jy jou ma op Sondagaande?

Die tydsverskil is omtrent 10 ure. Ons praat gewoonlik soggens my tyd en saans hulle tyd, gewoonlik Saterdae as ek af het.

Clint Eastwood & Marguerite

Matt Damon & Marguerite

Ek speel binnekort die hoofrol in een van die flieks. Ek is die hoofrol aangebied vir Maynard Kraak se film, Knysna, saam met Neels van Jaarsveld. Awesome storielyn. Ek sien so uit. Ek gaan in Junie weer in SA wees.

Hoe het jy jou Groenkaart gekry?

Ek het aansoek gedoen daarvoor deur ‘n prokureur wat meeste SA akteurs gehelp het met die EB1. Ek het met dit begin in 2008 en dis in Januarie 2012 goedgekeur.

Watter plek in die wêreld noem jy huis?

Ek voel nêrens en orals is huis. Dis moeilik om te beskryf. Ek love LA. Love my pals en die weer. Ek mis Yzerfontein. Dis my huis, daai klein dorpie is waar ek grootgeword het toe daar nog niks was nie. En ek mis dit terdeë. Frankryk is seker die lekkerste kultuur en leefstyl.

Praat jy met ʼn Amerikaanse aksent Engels in Hollywood? Met vreemde mense oefen ek in Amerikaans, ja. Of as ek mense spot met die Kaliforniese aksent, dan maak ek dit grappenderwys na.

Praat jy Afrikaans met ʼn Amerikaanse aksent?

Afrikaans met Amerikaanse aksent? Is jy mal? Hehe, maar hulle sê tog as jy die Amerikaanse aksent aanleer, moet jy dit so oefen, jou eie taal probeer namaak met ’n Amerikaanse aksent. Dit werk. So stilletjies in my kar, ja.

Was daar al een rol wat jy amper gekry het?

Daar was, maar die geld het deur die mat geval. Jip, selfs in Hollywood sukkel hulle met befondsing al is dit reuse produksies.

Wat laat jou dink jy wil liewer terugkom huis toe? Daar is ‘n gemeenskapstuin hier in my omgewing wat soos Yzerfontein ruik in die Lente. Dis laventel en daai pers papierblombosse. Ek draf soms soontoe en staan en snuif die lug sodat dit soos my kinderdae voel. Mense dink seker ek is met die maan gepla.

Wat laat jou terug verlang na jou kinderdae op Yzerfontein? Fynbos se reuk. Toktokkies wat klop. Klein skilpadjies. Hasies in die bos, dassies op die rotse en duikers in die oprit. Die hawemuur back in the day toe ons nog daar kon kreef uithaal en sonbruin word op die muur. Swem in die koue see, braaf, met jou bikini in die agtermiddag net voor die son begin sak. Alle klanke verdwyn om jou en jy hoor net die branders en ruik die sout.

Watter goed in LA wil jou daar laat aanbly?

Hier is ‘n kruidenierswinkel, Trader Joes. Ek sal hier bly net vir Trader Joes. En vir Spotify, Pandora en Songza. Dis als musiek radiokanale op die iPhone app. Suid-Afrika het dit ongelukkig nog nie. Dis die beste ding wat nog ooit met my kon gebeur. Jy kies byvoorbeeld een lied waarvan Ingrid & Marguerite jy hou en dan speel die app.

Was jou hart al gebreek en wat het jy gedoen om dit heel te maak?

Ons almal s’n was mos maar al gebreek. Heel maak kom met tyd, baie tyd en jy leer om jou vertroue op Jesus te fokus in plaas van mense. Dan kan mens nogal baie krag herwin.

Het jy ’n Barbie pop gehad?

Ek dink ek het iets soos 23 Barbies gehad en hulle lê nog steeds êrens in ‘n goiingsak in my ouers se waenhuis met al hulle oorspronklike rokkies. Als nog mooi opgepas... dis nou as die vismotte hulle nog nie bygekom het nie. MA! Loep kyk gou! Ek het in Standerd 3 ’n Indiër Barbie gekry, want ons het in Mauritius gewoon vir ’n kort rukkie toe my pa daar gewerk het. Sy was vir my beeldskoon, net omdat sy nie blond was nie, maar eksoties.

Wie is vir jou ʼn mooi vrou in SA?

Daar is so baie mooi vrouens in SA. My ma, Ingrid, my skoonsuster Roné, ongelooflike vrouens. SA het van die mooiste vrouens in die wêreld het ek al gehoor.

Wie is vir jou ʼn mooi man in SA?

Aangesien ek gesê het my ma moet ek seker nou sê my pa, Cecil. My pa is iemand na wie ek opkyk met besonderse liefde en respek. Hy’t my geleer van diere en het mense lief en sal altyd help. Hy’t sy alie af gewerk om vir ons ’n goeie lewe te bied en werk steeds bitter hard en sal nooit krediet vat daarvoor nie, maar gee alle eer aan Jesus. Dis nou ’n mooi man daai!

Watter Afrikaanse akteur en aktrise dink jy het kwaliteite om dit te maak in Hollywood? Frank Rautenbach definitief. Uhm, ek natuurlik, hehe, grappie! Ek glo Angelique Pretorius het die talent en fut in haar. Ek glo ook menigte ander aktrises soos Jana Strydom en Lika Berning, hulle almal kan Hollywood laat les op sê. j

kuns op die Platteland

en van my geliefkoosde stellings oor kuns is deur George Adéagbo (kunstenaar van Benin) “Art, but what is art? Art is a way of talking. It’s a way of walking. It’s a way of showing things to people in an indirect manner… a way of living amongst people.”

Einde 1992 het ek kom woon in die dorpie Darling. ‘n Graad in beeldende kuns was deel van my intrekbaggasie. Hier leef ek ‘n gewone lewe, skilder omtrent elke dag en waardeer dit om saans helder sterre te kan sien. ‘n Klein gallery vir Darling en omgewing se kunstenaars is 21 jaar later ‘n uitloopsel van dié lewe.

Sat: 10:00 - 16:00 Darling Gallery

Wanneer weet ‘n kunstenaar dat hy/sy nou ‘n volbloed kunstenaar is, nie net maar ‘n stokperdjie beoefen nie? Dit het my ten minste 49 jaar geneem om myself dit met gemak te kon noem. In die jaar 2008 het ek ‘n eerste solo uitstalling gehou by Cloof Wynlandgoed. Dit was ‘n sukses. Om ‘n musiekinstrument te bemeester mag jare van toewyding neem, van deuntjies te speel tot konsertstukke. Kunsmaak is ook so. Darling Galery is gebaseer op die vraag. Dit is ‘n ruimte nie soseer vir mooi prente wat pas by die kleur van iemand se sitkamerbank en gordyne nie. Die werke vra vrae, vertel stories, kla, sing, maak stellings, eis dinkwerk en voelwerk. Gedurende 2009 was ek bevoorreg om saam my suster die Venesië Biennale te kon besoek. Dit was toe die 53ste jaar wat die internasionale uitstalling gehou is. (Irma Stern was in haar dae genooi om daaraan deel te neem) Dié ongelooflike ervaring het vir altyd my siening van wat kuns is verander, ten goede en ten kwade. Daardie jaar se tema was Fare Mondi of Making Worlds. Daniël Birnbaum kurator van 2009 se biennale het geskryf: “A work of art is more than an object, more than a commodity. It represents a vision of the world, and if taken seriously must be seen as a way of making a world.” Hier aan die suidpunt van Afrika maak ons kunstenaars werke oor hulle wêreld. Sommige doen dit al vir jare en praat ‘n sterk kunstaal, ander is aan die begin die reis. Kunsskep is ‘n pad om te loop. Darling Galery gee hopelik ‘n kykie in ons kontrei se kuns. ♥

I have always enjoyed art. After I matriculated, I went to study fine art.

How old were you when you had your first exhibition and where was it?

What is your favourite medium?

Oil paint is the most forgiving medium. You can play with colour, brushstrokes, create and recreate all in one sitting. When it is dry you can take it to the next level and make the painting come alive with feeling, emotion and depth. Each painting evolves and becomes its own.

Do you have a ‘muse’? Who or what is it?

I like my work to evolve and become its own. There is always a feminine element in my painting. The Nguni Cow, the Moon & Bird symbolises the female either being motherly, grounded to earth, free in flight or to be in touch with the bigger universe or just to be. The viewer perceives a painting through their own eyes therefore I would like each painting to speak for itself.

Where can the readers view or buy your art?

I teach and paint from my studio at home. I do mostly commissions and take part in our local exhibitions held in Darling. I am working towards my next solo exhibition. My art can be viewed at my studio in Darling. Wen ‘n Sondag ete vir 2 & ‘n leeu toer by die Weskus Padstal. Beantwoord die vraag en stuur jou naam en kontak besonderhede aan iloveyzer@gmail.com. Hoeveel wit leeus is daar by die Weskus Padstal? Inskrywings sluit 31 Aug 2014. Voorwaardes geld.

Did you have art education at school or at a tertiary institution?

I had art at school. Completed a BAFA at Technikon Pretoria in 1996.

Do you have any advice for new artist? You must enjoy the process of creating, art is a journey. Allow yourself to play, explore your subject matter, medium and techniques. It is amazing what can be created through play. Always push your boundaries because you are on your own journey.

Do you ever have a mental block when you can’t create anything?

You need to feed your own imagination. It is always good to go to galleries and exhibitions and get inspired by other artists. Another good way to get inspiration is to put colour on your palette and just start playing with colour on a canvas and see where it takes you. ♥ Contact Lauren ♥ 022 492 3825 ♥ 082 718 9373

Hy verloor sy vrou Johanna Susanna Alberta Venter, in 1904 aan die begin van die jaar voor die Nama Opstande. Met die uitbreek van die opstande is hy dus ‘n wewenaar met vier klein wesies en was hy en sy moeder Esther Jacoba Maritz alleen op die plaas Garries en moes hulle per voet en een perd vlug na veiligheid op Kub. Daarna koop hy en sy twee broers, David en Hans, die plaas Stamprietfontein van die weduwee Fourie, wie se man, haar seun en swaer deur die Nama’s vermoor is, waar hy baie suksesvol boer veral nadat volop water raakgeboor word. Die drie broers het die plaas opgedeel in drie gedeeltes. Dawid het gekry Ou Stampriet, wat vandag aan die Roomse behoort. Klaas het gekry Stampriet wat deesdae opgedeel is in ‘n klomp dele, naamlik die dorp, die van der Waths se plaas en ‘n paar plotte in die vallei wat destyds genoem was Broodkeel. Een van die plotte, Maritzville het later aan sy seun Kallie behoort. Hans het op Auob Drift, later verdoop na Spes Bona deur Tobias Maritz, - nie familie van ons nie - wat die plaas van Hans gekoop het. Hans het daarna op die plaas Somersville naby Aranos gaan bly. Jan het nie sy eie plaas gehad nie en het maar altyd by sy Ma Esther Jacoba Maritz gebly op die plaas Nunib, wat sy waarskynlik gekry het by die SWA Administrasie onder ‘n stelsel van grondbesit wat hulle genoem het graslisensie. Andrew het ook by sy Ma gebly tot sy dood is en toe op ‘n plaas dieper in die Kalahari gaan boer op die plaas Oriana. Nadat Klaas Maritz Stampriet verkoop het het hy op die plaas Dobbin gaan boer. Oor sy aandeel aan die ontwikkeling van Stampriet kan boekdele geskryf word. Die privaatskool Elnatan se hoofgebou was sy woonhuis (ontwerp deur sy broer Andrew en Schroeder, Eirup). Die Duitse Regering het na steenkool gesoek en het die eerste artesiese boorgat (springwater) naby Klaas Maritz se woonhuis oopgeboor en hy het die palmbome wat nou so ‘n kenmerk van Stampriet is, langs die pad na sy eerste woonhuis genoem Die Kafhok geplant. Die bome wat aan die onderent van sy destydse lusernland staan, is met die water uit die eerste boorgat natgedra met emmers deur onder andere sy seun Kallie. Nie een van sy kinders het Universiteit toe gegaan nie. Kallie het na matriek op Robertson na die Landbou Kollege Gammams by Windhoek gegaan. Giel, Oela, Kitty en Hansie Patria het matriek gemaak. Die redes waarom Klaas en Hans Maritz van Stampriet getrek het:

Die storie van

Nicolaas

maritz

Dit was depressiejare - 1933. Hy het baie slegte skuld op sy boeke gehad. Die deelsaaiers en mense wat by hom geld geleen het omdat hulle nie by die banke kon regkom nie, kon eenvoudig nie betaal nie. Hy het die winkel gehad saam met Daanjie Kotze as bestuurder/vennoot en toe hy die winkel terugkry was daar nie ‘n blou duit in die kas nie. Stampriet as plaas was vir veeboerdery maar ‘n klein plasie vir hierdie omgewing wat ongeveer 3000 ha groot was terwyl 7000 as ‘n ekonomiese eenheid beskou is. Die saaiboerdery was ook te klein om besonder winsgewend te wees (ongeveer 10 hektaar onder besproeiing). Om geld te kon maak moes ‘n boer karakoelskape hê en Klaas het lank na ander boere al oorgeslaan na karakoele, nog geweier om met hulle te boer omdat hy gemeen het dit is sonde om die lammertjies so klein-klein kop af te sny. Dan was daar die verandering in die lewe op Stamprietdorp. Nie lank na Klaas weg is uit Stampriet het Hans ook getrek. Oom Hans was reguit omtrent sy rede vir sy wegtrek, die veranderde lewe op die dorp met die hotel, skool en winkel het hom nie meer geval nie. Hy het begin ontuis voel op Stampriet. Wiesa en Oela vertel ‘n staaltjie wat die situasie goed verduidelik. Een Saterdagoggend sit hulle op die stoep van die huis, (later die hotel) en teedrink. Vandaar af kan mens mooi afkyk op die skool se tennisbane. Klaas sien die onderwysers daar tennis speel en merk toe kopskuddend op dat hulle tog liewer maar by hom onder in die koringland kan kom bloubos uittrek as hulle dan oefening nodig het! Hy was nie bankrot nie. Na die verkoop van Stampriet afgehandel is het hy die eiendomme Dobbin, Middelpos (later Patria), Nunib, waarop sy moeder gewoon het en as graslisensieplaas gekry het) en Bysteek gehad (ongeveer 20,000 ha) met vee wat toe darem al karakoele was op al die plase. Sy seun, Kallie, het vir Niek se seun later vertel dat toe Oupa vir Stampriet verkoop het, het die mense gedink dis nou klaar met ou Klaas Maritz. Maar toe hulle weer sien, sit hy hoog en droog op Dobbin met sy troppe skaap op Middelpos, Nunib en Bysteek sonder ‘n pennie skuld. ♥ Contact Nicolaas ♥ 078 419 7093 ♥ bignick098@gmail.com Wen ‘n kopie van Nicolaas Maritz se boek Paintings Drawings & Prints ter waarde van R250.

Ami smuts When did you realise that art is your passion?

It seems forever...first exposure was from my grandmother, Beatrice, or better remembered as Baby Versveld’s Art.

How old were you when you had your first exhibition and where was it?

My first exhibition was at my farm stall, Vygevallei, on the West Coast road in the 90s.

What is your favourite medium? Oil. What is your favourite subject?

Flowers & seascapes, but I go through phases where I tackle other subjects.

Where can the readers view or buy your art?

At my current business, Club Café (Yzerfontein’s Sport & Recreation Club), Café Mosaic in Darling and Darling Gallery.

Did you have art education at school or at a tertiary institution?

Part time art classes in school and studied art at the University of Stellenbosch. I received training with a variety of artists and as a graphic artist at a printing factory in Paarl.

Do you have any advise for new artists?

jj Buy the best canvas & paint possible. jj Be careful of staying with one teacher for too long. Advice and training is good, but the best is to develop your own style so that your work is identifiable and unique. jj Keep some of your work as you progress and sell the rest. jj As a business woman I have one small piece of advice: Your art won’t sell if it is hidden away in your house. Get it out there and be inspired by a sale. jj As the previous owner of Vygevallei Farm Stall, I sold my own art and those of local artists over a period of 13 years. Now at Club Café I am fortunate enough to once again have wall space for local artists and my own work. Finding wall space is a problem for most artists. I have also noticed that most artist don’t have the self confidence to market their work.

Do you ever have a mental block when you can’t create anything?

Yes, everyday life gets in the way of painting. The ideal situation would be enough time to paint, perfect conditions and lots of inspiration and discipline. But I love my life and can’t complain. I don’t mind making time for painting, even if it is in the middle of the night. I am fortunate to have a small studio in Club Café, so during less busy times I slip into the studio and get my hands dirty, which I love! Nothing beats the smell of wet oil paint and turpentine. I do take commissions, but mostly I paint what I feel inspired by and when inspired! Art keeps me sane while the world goes crazy. ♥ Contact Ami ♥ 022 4512 217 ♥ 072 647 9661

anneer het jy die eerste keer besef dat kuns jou passie is?

Dis moeilik om ’n spesifieke tyd of oomblik daaraan te koppel. Ek onthou hoe ek as kind sulke abstrakte tekeninge gemaak het. My ma het my aangemoedig om kreatief te wees. Op universiteit het ek ’n groepie vriende gehad wat kuns studeer het. Ons het nou saamgeleef en dit het verseker ’n impak op my lewe gehad. Die hunkering na die kreatiewe het met die jare toegeneem en ek het dit altyd op die een of ander manier probeer voed. Ek het my eerste skildery in ’n hotelkamer geverf toe ek op ’n keer navorsing gaan doen het in Louis Trichard. Om kunstenaar te wees is om dit te leef! Dit raak ’n bestaanswyse. Vir my is kuns nie ’n fasset van my lewe nie, maar vorm dit ’n geintegreerde deel van my lewe. Ek het ’n diepgewortelde passie om kreatief te leef. Kreatiwiteit is soos suurstof! Dit is ’n belangrike lewensvaardigheid wat in mense ontsluit moet word. Daarom is dit ook my passie om kreatiwiteitswerkswinkels aan te bied waar mense hulle eie kreatiwiteit kan ontdek.

Hoe oud was jy toe jy jou eerste kuns uitstalling gehad het?

Een van die eerste vlaggies wat ek kon inplant, was toe een van my werke by die Nuwe Handtekeninge in Pretoria uitgestal is in die vroeë 90s. Kort daarna het ek en 3 ander kunstenaars by die Kunsvereniging van Bellville (ArtB) gallery uitgestal.

Wat is jou gunsteling medium om te gebruik?

Ek is baie lief vir houtskool en gemengde media, maar beperk myself nie graag tot bepaalde media nie. Vir my is dit ’n uitdaging om ’n onderwerp of tema deur die gebruikmaking van verskillende media te ondersoek. Die bepaalde kunsmedium vorm immers self ook deel van die proses van betekenistoeskrywing en uitdrukking. Dan is dit ook soveel ryker om die skilderkuns saam met ander kunsvorme soos digkuns, musiek, fotografie en film te gebruik.

Wat is jou gunsteling onderwerp?

Die lewe self! Gedagtes, idees wat hulle by jou kom aanmeld. Hoewel ek baie lief is vir portrette, kies ek om wyd te werk. Ek het ontdek dat landskappe baie fassinerend kan wees, veral as jy mense en objekte binne ’n landskap plaas. Landskappe raak eintlik vir my ’n metafoor waarvolgens jy na jouself, die mens en omgewing binne verskillende kontekste kyk. Dit gaan onder meer om die soeke en definiëring van identiteit asook hoe lewensverhale rondom dit geweef word. Belangrik is die proses en beweeglikheid – die reis!

Meeste kunstenaars het ‘n ‘muse’. Het jy een?

Om stilte & solitude in te asem soos suurstof. Dis ’n plek wat jy in jou vind waar jy jou aan die lewe kan verwonder en weet wie God is! Dis daar waar jy tot rus kom en gevul word met nuwe gedagtes, idees, insig, inspirasie. Dan groei en kring die skeppingsproses uit. Mens kan dit vergelyk met bevrugting en ontwikkeling in die moederskoot. Wanneer die baba gebore word deel jy dit met mense en word hulle ook deel van die proses.

Waar stal jy jou kuns uit?

By my studio asook sekere galerye. Mense kan my gerus kontak. Sekere van my werk was al in tydskrifte – en ek was ook al gelukkig om per geleentheid dekking op radio en televisie te kry.

Het jy kuns op skool gehad of nagraads studeer?

Tydens my skoolloopbaan het ek nie die geleentheid gehad om kunsonderrig te ontvang nie. Toe ek universiteit toe is was kuns een van die rigtings wat ek oorweeg het, maar het toe heeltemal in ’n ander rigting studeer. Terwyl ek as navorser in die geesteswetenskappe gewerk het, het ek begin om buitemuurs by UNISA sekere kunsvakke te neem. Ek het ook privaatklasse by verskillende kunstenaars geneem wat onder meer Nico Hagen by die DalJosefat Kunsstigting ingesluit het. Ek is ’n groot voorstaander vir voortgesette opleiding en daarom woon ek op gereelde basis werkswinkels en informele geleenthede by. Ek vind ook gesprekke met gevestigde kunstenaars baie leersaam en inspirerend. Judith Mason en Jean Beeton was vir my in die opsig hoogtepunte. Koinonia

Wat is jou advies aan opkomende kunstenaars?

Leef met passie! Weet waarin en wie jy glo. Weet wat jou drome en visie is en omhels dit. Breek weg van perfeksionisme wat een van die grootste struikelblokke in die kreatiewe proses kan wees. Wees vry, leef vry, eksperimenteer en geniet! Die proses van kuns is terapeuties en vernuwend. Deur te skep word jy vry, word jy getransformeer – verras! Die lewe self is die grootste leerskool; deur eksperimentering en verkenning ontdek jy dinge en word grense verskuif. Dis ook dikwels deur ervaringe van verlies, pyn en worsteling dat jy baie keer die geleentheid vind om te groei. ♥

Dave Nemeth is a partner in the new Haus of Décor and Haus of Design business in Yzerfontein and available for consultations on his visits down from JHB

by Dave Nemeth

ost people have heard the terms interior designer and interior decorator, yet very few actually know what this profession does as well as the difference between the two. The most important thing to bear in mind is that both of these are professional titles, although many individuals with a creative eye are calling themselves by these titles. It is important to check out references prior to taking on either and also checking if they are part of a professional body such as the IID (The South African Institute of the Interior Design Professions). The professional advice and work you will have done by qualified professionals should end up saving you money rather than just being an elaborate unnecessary expense that quickly dates. The biggest difference and most important difference between a decorator and a designer is that a qualified designer will be able to do structural alterations as well as additions to an existing property and submit the plans to council for approval. Although qualified designers can draw up plans up to 500m2 without an architect, many choose to work in conjunction and collaborate with architects.

Haus of Décor Competition!

Win a free Interior Design & Décor Consultation & Proposal to the value of R5000! The prize includes a 20% discount voucher on the final cost should the winner decide to proceed with the home make over. Send your name & contact details to iloveyzer@gmail.com or enter in-store at Haus of Décor, Seaview Centre, Yzerfontein. Entries close: 31 Aug 2014. The prize is valid until 31 Oct 2014. T&C’s apply.

Interior designers are experts at space planning and will be able to give you accurate renderings of your floor space and in many instances even give you 3D visuals. This is a sure way to get a good idea of what your space will look like before you have to part with your hard earned cash. Both Interior decorators as well as designers handle the decor aspects of a project which include the overall look and feel as well as furniture,

wall finishes, window treatments such as curtains and blinds as well as lighting and art. A good designer or decorator will generally custom make the majority of the furniture allowing you the flexibillity of choosing, sizes, fabrics and finishes which are suited to your specific needs and tastes. Further to this you are assured of a hand-crafted quality, locally produced product and not a cheap Chinese import as are found in many larger retailers. A decorator or designer should always give you various cost options and where possible offer recovery or refurbishment on pieces that are heirlooms or hold a special place in your heart. At the end of the day the home is where you live and needs to reflect your personality and not that of your designer or decorator. When calling on the services of a decorator or designer, you will generally be charged an initial consultation fee, which will vary depending on the experience of the designer or decorator. This initial consultation fee should include a feedback document with pictures of homes, schemes and furniture, which should give you and idea of what direction your home or room will take. It is after this stage that you will decide whether you will be using their services or not. It is also a very good idea to discuss your budgets right upfront, so that the professional has a clear goal and this will avoid any nasty surprises during the process. ♥ Dave Nemeth is a qualified interior designer and one of SA’s leading trend forecasters. He consults to a variety of companies including some leading retailers and customised a host of prominent homes around the country including many celebrity residences. He is a monthly contributor to S.A. Homeowner and Objekt magazine.

ust off the R315 between Darling and Malmesbury a dusty road leads you through bucolic paddocks dotted with grazing sheep for five kilometres to Cloof and its sister property, neighbouring Burgherspost. The cellar was completed in 1998 and the first Cloof wines were released during the following year. The oldest vineyard still in use dates back to 1966, producing the Hermitage grapes used in the ever popular Inkspot Vin Noir blend. The characteristics of the wine are portrait in each label, expressing their unique personality’s individuality. Wines like The Very Sexy Shiraz, The Very Posh Pinotage and The Very Vivacious Viognier are just some of the personalities in the cellar.

Bookshop Antiques Coffee Shop

Burgherspost produce the grapes used by Cloof, but also offers accommodation for those seeking real tranquility and serenity. Together these two farms contribute to the conservation of two important veld types: Swartland Granite Bulb Veld and Atlantis Sand Fynbos, both very endangered. The large game camp is stocked with locally indigenous animals including Eland, Bontebok, Red Hartebees, and Springbok. Animals which were already there include Grey Rhebuck, Steenbok and several smaller predators such as Caracal, Honey Badger and the Cape clawless otter. This can be experienced either on foot following two different nature trails, which are carefully planned around the farm or a drive with the conservationist himself. Cloof not only host the very popular Rocking The Daisies festival every year, attended by more than 17 000 people, but also offers a picturesque setting for more intimate events, weddings, art exhibitions and workshops. Our passion for bold, well-defined flavours created in The Cloof Kitchen is expressed also in various food events at Cloof. Celebrating the best of country produce and simplicity in preparation, we see our wines as being their ideal complement. Afrikaans has a word, gesellig which best describes the happy mood that settles on a group when hospitality, good company, wine and food are brought together. ♥

he Marmalade Cat was the first eatery I visited in the Darling/Yzerfontein district when I first traveled here some years ago and I certainly was not disappointed. What first strikes you when you enter the Marmalade Cat is that it is not just any small town café. The walls are lined with an array of great gift ideas and gadgets for the home and kitchen! I remember buying a nifty (or should I say naughty) wine opener for a friend of mine to add to his collection of things for his home pub.

JUMPING CASTLES & PARTY HIRE

When you walk through the restaurant into The Barn at the back, there is literally a barn-full of unique and beautiful kitchen and home wares, ranging from hand made plates and platters to recovered wood picture frames and everything in between. I guarantee you that the items you find here you will not see anywhere else, certainly not at those large department home stores and price-wise, very reasonable.

Nadine Le Roux 0846770077 nadineleroux@gmail.com

If that is not enough, there is also The CatWalk, the adjoining boutique that has the most beautiful clothing, jewelry and accessories. Believe me it must be good, because when we go to The Marmalade Cat for coffee, I always have to go and pry my wife out of The CatWalk! Now getting back to the main event, the start of it all: The Marmalade Cat! The menu is a great collection of bistro/café type foods, with a good influence of West Coast cuisine. For breakfast there is the usual fare of eggs and bacon, but my favourite item is the omelet. I have never had such a fluffy, light omelet, so filled with air that it literally melts on the tongue. Just divine!

I cannot say that I have tried everything off the lunch menu, but what I have had has been utterly delicious! My favourite is the fish cakes and I certainly have had them several times! The chicken pies are also something of a speciality here! Then we come to Friday nights and the famous Marmalade Cat Pizza Nights! The Pizzas are exactly what one would expect from a good eatery with a crispy base and delicious, interesting toppings. If you are in the area over a Friday evening, I would definitely recommend Pizza Night. You are going to have to go to Naples, Italy, to find anything as good! But I must warn you that booking is essential, because the pizzas are so good that everyone in the district wants a piece of this pie (pizza-pie that is). Overall the service is attentive, but not in your face. Sandy Collins, the owner, is usually on hand to welcome you, and to guide you through the delicious fare on the menu as well as taking you through the exciting merchandise both in The Barn and the trendy CatWalk. I must say that visiting The Marmalade Cat is a unique experience, but being situated in creative Darling, you almost expect it to be there! And so Sandy Collins of The Marmalade Cat is one of my West Coast food heroes. Good, honest, freshly prepared food and some fashion and house wares thrown in for fun! If you are in this area, you have to pay a visit to this true icon of Darling. When you visit my blog at www.idigdapig.com, you can read more about Sandy Collins of The Marmalade Cat and other West Coast Food Heroes.♥

The flowers are inconspicuous, solitary or clustered, with no petals. The fruit is an edible bright yellow or orange berry, 2.5–4 cm diameter, with the skin and flesh of a uniform colour and containing several small seeds. Yellow fruits appear from January to May. Production is often copious, weighing down the branches during the summer. They are juicy, tasty and very acidic.

places it is most often grown as an ornamental plant, being popular as an impenetrable hedge. It is salt and drought-tolerant, so useful for coastal landscaping in dry regions. Although a subtropical species, the Kei apple is able to survive temperatures as low as -6°C. Gardeners who want fruit require a female plant. A fertile female plant and fertile male plant is ideal. Kei apples are propagated by seed. Plants will bear about four years later. j

A traditional food plant for the Khoi and San, this little known fruit has potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable landcare. Kei apples are often eaten fresh, or sprinkled with sugar to complement their natural acidity. Aside from being eaten fresh, the fruit can be made into jam, used in desserts, or pickled (their natural acidity means vinegar is not needed). Although it is native to Africa, it has also been introduced to the Mediterranean, California, Florida and other regions with subtropical and warm temperate climates. In these

Snotties en Snesies W

deur Dr Lindie Walters

inter is om die draai, en ons almal ken die gedrup-drup in die geute van die reen wat saggies val, die kaggelvure, warm sjokolade en om nie te praat van die glasie rooi wyn wat die binneste warm maak nie. REALITEIT Drup-drup van ons neuse, weghol stroom van irritasie, doekies, snesies, alles net om te help om die stroom te stop!

Winter, het ongelukkig sy bygevolge. Verkoue en griep is woorde wat ons daagliks hoor hierdie tyd, wat is die verskil, hoe gemaak en wat kan jy doen? Net ‘n verkoue of is dit griep? Heamophylis Influenza is die virus wat die siekte veroorsaak.

BYE BYE WRINKLES & SLEEPLINES

Die groot gevaar van Heamophylis Influenza is komplikasies soos akute brongitis, longontsteking en hartspier aantasting wat noodlottig kan wees, veral vir hoe risiko kandidate.

Voorkomende maatreels vir alle individue:

Die Griep virus steek aan deur druppel verspreiding en is ook aansteeklik 3 dae voor simptome begin tot 7 dae daarna. jj Hou die hand voor neus in geval van nies en hoes. jj Hou alle oppervlaktes skoon en kiemvry. jj Gebruik aparte eetgery. jj Sorg dat seep vrylik beskikbaar is in gebruiksareas. jj Vermy groot skares indien moontlik. jj Kry jou jaarlikse griep immunisasie.

Give Away! MJ Creations

is giving away a photo frame to the value of R200.

osmetics and make up dates back over 6000 years and most civilizations and cultures practice some form of facial or body art. Even the Bible refers to the use of make up in the book of Esther. Looking groomed without overdoing it, is an art form on its own.

To enter email your contact details to iloveyzer@gmail.com

My belief is for you to resemble yourself in the best form possible. All of us have amazing qualities that makes us unique. Make up should be used to enhance those qualities and make them stand out. There are key must do elements that should always be followed:

Competition ends 31 Aug 2014.

The eyebrows are key!

It is essential to have them groomed by a professional in the form of a brow tint and wax. If your therapist is qualified and skilled to groom the brows this will get you as close to a mini facelift without going under the knife. The brows form a integral part of your face. If they are too light they will just disappear giving you that dreaded terminally ill look. If they are too dark they can be very harsh. They need to be neat and tidy and the right colour to go with your hair colour.

A foundation of any kind is important.

This does not mean you need to plaster your skin with something covering your every freckle. The foundation (tinted moisturiser and BB cream included) will even out your skin by covering dreaded pigmentation spots and form a base for the rest of your make up. Foundations should be tested on the jawline to ensure a good match is made with regards to a shade. It also should be applied over the eye area.

Blusher in a fresh tone to give life to skin.

This will give depth and shading in areas needed. A bronzer can also be used as a blusher.

Liner and mascara is your eyes best friend.

Ter opsomming:

The liner should be applied as close to the lash line as possible. There are various different shades and one for every occasion. Depending on your eye size liner can also be used on the bottom lid. A good rule of thumb is the smaller the eye the less the liner. Otherwise you will make your eye look even smaller. Mascara is a must have for every woman. It opens the eye and enhances the liner by giving bulk to the lashes.

Bly warm, geniet die lekker dinge van winter so veel moontlik, en tref voorsorg om daai snesies te vermy, veral as jy meer kwesbaar is as ander. Lekker vuur maak! j Dr Lindie Walters ♥ Algemene Praktisyn ♥ Yzerfontein

Lastly a bit of lippie!

This can be in the form of a gloss or lipstick or both! These 5 steps form the basis of a day make up look and can be jazzed up for the evening by turning up the intensity and adding more. The best thing to do is to visit your beauty therapist or a make up artist and book a make up lesson. They look at you with fresh eyes and can give you good advice as to what shades suits you best and what you can add to your make up bag. The value of having your make up done professionally at least once in your life is unmeasurable.

Arthritis

A

rthritis is one of the most common but most underdiagnosed conditions in our pets, especially as they age. The symptoms can be very subtle and animals can seem more or less fine. In fact some of the most common signs of arthritis, such as moving around less and sleeping more, are just what you expect from an older pet anyway and so it is easy to dismiss them.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis occurs in the joints and develops when their smooth cartilage surface becomes roughened and inflamed. It can strike any joint in the body but the most commonly affected are the hips, elbows and knees. The disease can strike at any age but it mostly affects older animals.

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

The symptoms of arthritis can be variable and can be very subtle in the early stages. The most common signs include:

It is important to remember that the pain of arthritis is often a low grade, chronic discomfort. So your pet may not show any outward signs of being sore but may become grumpy or quieter than usual. This is why it is important to always be vigilant for changes in older pets, particularly in their personality.

are affected and how advanced the disease is. This is particularly important for younger animals as some can respond well to surgery on their joints, if it is performed in time. However, often one of the best ways to confirm the presence of arthritic joints is to monitor the response to a trial course of treatment.

How is arthritis treated?

There are many different ways to treat arthritis and individual animals respond differently to different treatment protocols. Often vets will trial combinations of medications and supplements to find the most effective treatment. The mainstay of treatment for arthritis is medication. These are antiinflammatory pain relievers that reduce both the soreness and the inflammation in the joint. They are generally very safe, can be used over long periods and most pets only need small doses to keep them comfortable. A blood test to check the status of your pet’s kidneys and liver may be needed before longterm medication is prescribed. Neutraceuticals can also be very helpful, especially in mildly affected animals. These are supplements which help to maintain the joints in as healthy state as possible. Complementary treatments which can be used to help are acupuncture and hydrotherapy (swimming). Arthritis is a painful and debilitating condition which can significantly affect quality of life, so understanding the disease, its symptoms and its treatments is a vital part of being a pet owner. j

How is arthritis diagnosed?

Vets will usually consider arthritis as a likely diagnosis in an animal which has the appropriate symptoms and presents with joint abnormalities on clinical examination. In some cases x-rays may be indicated. X-rays help in identifying exactly which joints

SPCA

o many of us have seen the sign on a wall somewhere. So many of us drive past the kennels weekly or even daily. The Swartland SPCA is situated next to the cemetery in Darling. Have you ever stopped? Do you know what your SPCA looks like?

We often get the comment Oh no, I’ll cry my eyes out! or I’ll want to take them all home. These statements ring true to all animal lovers but if we all just drove past and said ag shame where would a organisation like the SPCA go for support? The organisations main aim is to prevent cruelty against animals. That entails education in the community, mobile clinics and tending to cruelty cases. Another aspect we really would like to highlight is the adoption side. So many families or people living alone are looking for their next companion. Why not make adoption your first option? The act is twofold - not only are you giving a dog or cat a second chance, you will experience the gratitude of a animal finding its forever home.

Pro’s for adopting from the SPCA: jj Your future family pet has been assessed by our trained staff for any behavioral issues, whether they are good with other dogs/cats and to check what home they would be most suited to. jj The small adoption fee includes deworming, vaccination, sterilisation and a home check. All inclusive! jj Some adult animals are already house trained so no puppy issues! jj There are designer dogs and pavement specials alike! So much variety to choose from.

THE Darling Birding Route

D

arling Tourism have launched a new bird route, set to cater to bird lovers from all over. The route was officially launched by Dr Anton Odendal at a launch event held at Groote Post Wine Estate in April. With its completely rural, peaceful and natural habitat, the small town located less than an hour out of Cape Town, boasts diverse vegetation which attracts a wide range of birdlife. Birders can look forward to seeing a wide range of bird species from larks and pipits to lesser flamingoes and great white pelicans as well as a wide range of raptors in an area which stretches from the Strandveld of the Darling Hills Rd and Groote Post to the Renosterveld of Waylands and Oudepost wildflower reserves.

popular Darling Stagger are made aware of the wonderful bird life found within the area. The beauty of the flowering bulbs and the immense variety of wildflowers in the area create a unique springtime experience. During summer months, large numbers of blue cranes may be seen in the wheat fields along the Darling / Malmesbury and Moorreesburg roads. The Tienie Versfeld Reserve and the !Khwa ttu San Culture & Education Centre enable the visitors to further enjoy the diversity of Darling and its prolific bird life. j

“The intention is to appeal to dedicated birders promoting the numerous locations within Darling including the nearby Ramsar site at the Langebaan Lagoon as well as appealing to casual birders who visit Darling to enjoy a show at the Perron or a visit to one of the excellent wine cellars or one of the many activities held throughout the year in Darling,” says Shaun McLaughlin of Darling Tourism.
