Aberdeen is one of Donna’s favourite Karoo towns, boasting many cottages and buildings that have very interesting Karoo architecture. Somewhat disheveled, and somewhat loved, the buildings and strong light capturing Donna’s eye time and time again.

About Aberdeen

Aberdeen boasts the tallest church steeple in South Africa, a post office that should have been a law court elsewhere, and at one time the site of the biggest private zoo in the country – that’s the Karoo village of Aberdeen. Also a place where it is said nothing ever goes on but the passage of time. Aberdeen was established on a farm first called ‘Brakkefontein’ (‘brackish water’), that was owned by Jan and Betsy Vorster. The Dutch Reformed Church bought Brakkefontein in 1855 to build a church and a school and the town was founded the next year.

The village of Aberdeen lies within sight of the Camdeboo Mountains, 50km south of Graaff-Reinet in the Great Karoo. This small Eastern Cape town is filled with Victorian style buildings, wide streets and a relaxed pace of life. It has become a haven for artists, ‘down-sizers’ and a lively creative group. And it also has charming oddness.

About Prints on Canvas

Many of Donna’s artworks are offered as fine art digital prints, which have been skilfully photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers. These prints are limited edition and numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. They are printed on the highest quality canvasses. The printing process has employed fade resistant, HP Vivera archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof promise.

These artist prints are offered in varying sizes. Also the prints on canvas can be provided stretched over a wooden frame or rolled in a core for easy shipping. Lastly, each canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art sealant.
