πŸ’• About

Hi, I am Maree Clarkson, also known as Hedgie and my passions are painting, sketching, gardening and nature. I specialise in watercolours, but also dabble in acrylics and oils from time to time.

I live on my little piece of African soil (8,5ha) in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa, (which is about 50km from Johannesburg in the country-side) together with my husband, our Foxie x puppy, my Chooks, whom I refer to as my girls, and an assortment of other animals.
.
I spend most of my time (when I’m not painting or sketching!) gardening, tending to my flock of chickens and other animals, usually some injured bird or other form of wildlife rescued from various situations.
Living in Africa is something very special and I am constantly delighted, amused and amazed by the things I see, do and experience. Join me in some of these experiences.

My fascination with Echeverias started in the 1980's, when my father gave me a pot with five Echeverias, which turned out to be E. glauca. At first I wasn't much interested in them and planted them in some obscure corner of the garden and completely forgot about them. How great was my surprise when, a couple of months later, I noticed that they had spread and made a beautiful display - I was hooked!
