About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

A Forest Path

Mixed Media - Coffee and W&N watercolour on Amedeo 200gsm

The sound
Of silence


Of green
And other hue


Approaching mist
Above a forest path

  1. Thank you for bringing your part of the world to the rest of us so beautifully Maree, and this is no exception. I also loved your nagapie - I think I last saw one when I was 16 years old when on holiday in the Magaliesberg, about 128 years ago! Hope 2012 turns out brilliantly for you and your family.

  2. Aaah, thank you for your kind words Liz! and I also feel it's 128 years since Pippin was with me, one just does not see them anymore. May your 2012 also sparkle for you and your loved ones!

  3. Maree,
    Your paintings are unique,they are brilliant.And as a follower of Jesus I perceive God in your natural landscapes and their inhabitants.
