Villagers

Villagers is more like a creativity emporium than a gallery because Annelien van der Colff's talents spill out in several directions. She epitomises the artist as "maker". With her hands she makes sculptures and paintings, and garments in wool or cloth. With her guitar and mellifluous voice she makes music. And with her buoyant spirit she makes friends and converts wherever she goes.

Annalien had the priviledge to paint the late Busi Mhlongo's prayers on her latest CD Amakohlwe. One of the paintings was also used on the CD cover. It was a total intuitive experience and give her an oppurtunity to do portrets, her forte while studying Fine Arts at Potchefstroom university. For Annalien, music and color go hand in hand. Visit Villagers to see more of her olive landscapes. She paints under the name AMO.
