Treehouse Arts

Treehousearts had its beginnings 20 years ago when Margaret Knight and Sally Jean Rush relocated from Johannesburg to The Crags.

Essentially they came to start a new life as artists, inspired by nature. They bought a house overlooking an indigenous forest, surrounded by trees, birds, vegetation and forest creatures. The perfect setting for creating art works!

Sally has been drawing for most of her life, having studied at “The Johannesburg College of Art”, specialising in graphic fine art. Her work is very illustrative, and she enjoys drawing and painting in watercolour. She won a tender to paint four information boards for Sanparks which can be seen at various sites along the Garden Route.

Margaret worked in Johannesburg as an Architectural draughts person, and then moved into interior design.

She independently learnt the art of decorating using pewter, solder and copper wiring. This intricate craft beautifully decorates Ostrich egg tee lights with wire and images of flowers, birds and animals. She also uses the craft to enhance various glassware and dishes, transforming the shapes in an almost art deco style. Margaret employs another unique method, painting with metal using a soldering gun, to transform something plain into something special.

Both Sally and Margaret exhibit at The Harkerville Market every Saturday.
