© 2021 Shaune Rogatschnig: My Brush with Life
NOEL ADORNO, TEXAS USA
Back in 2019, the South African chapter in my life was coming to a close as my husband had taken a job back in the USA. Before I left knew I wanted a few paintings to remind me of the stunning fynbos of our Cape life. I had seen paintings by Shaune Rogatschnig at various Kirstenbosch art exhibits and have always been struck at how they were so modern yet captured the vibrancy of the Cape flora. So I reached out to Shaune to see what could be arranged in the short time I had left. Due to my luggage limitations, we quickly settled in on me acquiring several medium and large prints which could be rolled up and transported in tubes. After returning to the USA, I had them all framed. I'm so pleased to have these reminders of our wonderful lives in South Africa.

Shaune paints the most amazing proteas. She captures these flowers so beautifully. I love the colours, her technique and that her paintings don't look like photographs. Our 3 prints look so nice in our beach house in the Grotto Bay Private Nature Reserve which is full of fynbos.
Oh how I love my protea prints by Shaune! They still bring me much joy daily. Besides
the fresh beauty of the art, the prints are of high quality. I asked Shaune for advice
on framing and she gave me a very detailed framing recipe that shows the prints off
optimally.They arrived quickly and well-
