© 2021 Shaune Rogatschnig: My Brush with Life
I encountered Shaune’s work a few years ago and fell in love with her exquisite paintings
of proteas. This year I was delighted to be able to purchase an original painting
of a protea which has been named “Nostalgia” (I’m South African born and it seemed
appropriate) which was shipped to me in the UK -
KERRY COLLINS, UK, 2021
ORIGINAL PAINTING “NOSTALGIA’ 100 x 120 cm
It all started with a card … one of Shaune's greeting cards with a beautiful protea on it, was given to me when I started Chemotherapy. The card is pasted on the inside page of my journal… inspires me daily by its beauty. However, I wanted something visible to us daily.
2 LARGE PRINTS; DAZZLE AND MINT (2018)
I was delighted to see info about the special purchase option for canvas prints of
some of the protea giftcards. Both the info on the card (website info etc) and the
interaction with Shaune via her email, was accurate and efficient. She even adjusted
the 'offer' to include 'mint' as a canvas print-
We have 3 of Shaune's beautiful protea prints in our bedroom but our dream was always to have a Shaune Rogatschnig original on our walls. That dream was realized when the opportunity arose to commission a landscape of our beloved Noordhoek beach. It makes such a statement as you walk into our home. It was such a pleasure working with you, thank you for bringing the beach into our home Shaune, we love it!

3 x LARGE PRINTS (2018)
ORIGINAL ACRYLIC AND MIXED WATER-
Over the past few years I have had the great privilege of collecting a few of Shaune’s artworks. Her pieces bring me immense pleasure by daily bringing life and colour to the rooms they hang in.
Shaune is passionate about her gift which reflects in her works and she passes that passion on to you, the customer. She will painstakingly work on each piece until it is just right, never compromising on the quality of her artwork.
1 MEDIUM PRINTS (2018), 1 ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING (2019), 1 ORIGINAL ABSTRACT (2021)
Her enthusiasm for life and her art is infectious and her professionalism outstanding. The deep love she has for her subject is evident from the minute you meet her. Shaune is continually experimenting with different mediums, colours and subjects, constantly heading out into nature to be inspired by her surroundings. She respects and adores her environment and the country she so fondly paints of.
A few minutes in Shaune’s workspace is like food for the soul and you leave knowing the world is a better place having Shaune in it.
After salivating over Shaune's beautiful artworks for a few years, I finally took the plunge only to find the one that really resonated with me was sold. Shaune offered to paint something in similar colours for me. That was rather daunting as I was concerned I wouldn't like it but I absolutely love my painting and it makes my home! Now I keep looking for blank walls.
Thanks Shaune for your warm and personal approach!

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-

4 MEDIUM PRINTS
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.

LARGE: King of Thrones, Vivacity and Flare MEDIUM: Loved One, Luminous, Uplift, Seeking, I'm not Wallflower
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.
