Retha's artistic journey took her to the enchanting landscapes of the Klein Karoo, where she found inspiration in its beauty and serenity. With a collection of fascinating finds, including skulls, shells, sticks, and stones, she crafts imaginative insects that reflect her deep love for our country's plants, insects, animals, and landscapes.
