Married to the guy on these old paintings

Mother of Four:

2 Rockstars, 1 Genius & a pretty Girl without shoes.

Tertia lives in Paarl, Western Cape, South Africa, in the heart of the Winelands

with her husband, Johan, and four children, 

Danie 20, Moskou 18, Wadda 14 and Bella 9

 At 42 she is an accomplished artist,

having studied fine art, lectured and exhibited extensively.

“ I would recommend a creative career / leap as an alternative form of oxygen for anyone.”
“As for the women in my paintings. . ."

 On the subject of male / female dominance, (as it could pertain to the objectification of either one) I  simply like the whole romantic Tarzan and Jane concept, as long as Tarzan does not turn into a complete ape and Jane can climb her own ropes.”

I believe sensuality is a lot like the tip of an iceberg – most of it is hidden but it is inherent in all women. It might just show in her chin or shoulders but these are the parts that I look for and combine to create a kind of unrestricted female strength and sensuality.
