Burnt Earth and Wild dogs go together…..

My artistic collaboration with Burnt Earth ceramics at The Studio is wildly exciting, and involves Wild dogs!


Ceramics was aa deep interest for me at art college, and at last I get to combine it with my wild dog art….Yay!

I am happy to say that part proceeds from all the wild dog pottery sold will go towards the two admirable wild dog initiatives in Zimbabwe, African Wildlife Conservation Fund, and Painted Dog Conservation.

Watch this space for the final result….here are some teaser photos!


IMG_0434.jpgWe will have a pop-up exhibition of my paintings and ceramics at The Studio during the whole month of April.

Such as this platter, “Portrait 1”

My painting, “The Hunters”, acrylic on loose canvas, 2 metres long!:


The Grand opening will be Friday 31st March, and Saturday morning 1st April, at The Studio, together with Burnt Earth ceramics, Painted Wolf Wines, and “The Rugged Kitchen” (Yum!)


Much of my work on show will be inspired by the deep red colours of Mopani leaves in winter, wild dogs’ eyes, and rust red ceramic tiles….here is a detail from my painting, “Portrait” , acrylic and oil bar on stretched canvas, see my art blog page for details of this and all current paintings…

About wineandwilddogs

Lin Barrie The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues. This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil. Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation. Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas. Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.
