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 farmer's cottage

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

A farmer’s cottage on a smallholding not far from us in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa.



  1. Maree this is so charming. I love cottages and a farmer's cottage sounds so romantic to me. I love all your latest mountain and tree paintings too. So much beauty.

    PS I am Kerrie of Seawashed :)

    1. Aaaah, thank you very much Kerrie, appreciate that!

  2. I just wanted to pop in and say how much I enjoy seeing your sketches of your surroundings. They are so lovely!

    1. Thanks ever so much Jenny, pleased to have you here!
