“The purpose of my work is to awaken a consciousness of our connectivity with the planet as a whole. I want to draw my viewer into moments of self reflection – soul searching for that is what makes us truly human.” – Jean Theron Louw
Her vision is to awaken thought and interaction in others as they view the work, resulting in a consciousness of our interconnectivity within the planet as a whole. Making us realize that we are all interconnected and just part of a larger whole
