Carol Cox, Artist
I was born and raised in Zululand, South Africa and spent a great deal of my childhood in the Hluhluwe and Umfolozi game reserves. I love African wildlife and since moving to the UK in 2005 have drawn great comfort from expressing that love through my art.
I feel my life in Africa has been a build-up to this time. Information – passion – knowledge – all related to African wildlife – stored up in me for a time such as this.
A time when I am living so far from it – a time when my love for it is in some way fed and nurtured by this outpouring onto canvas and paper some of what is stored up in me. I have no formal art training and work from home in my own little studio. I am a member of the London Visual Arts Group and exhibit at their galleries at Sheraton Hotel Heathrow and Fego’s, Gerrards Cross.

Martin Evans has been painting for more than 18 years focusing on the French Impressionist style of painting. From a young age Martin showed interest in art and enjoyed pencil drawings during his school years. No formal art training was received but the urge to paint peeked during his university years during the completion of his business studies. This strong desire to be creative with a brush let him to take up oil painting classes. This was the birth of more than just a hobby, it become his passion and great love.

Preferred subject matter includes amongst others landscapes, farm scenes, seascapes and trees. Martin resides in the southern tip of Africa in the beautiful rainbow country, South Africa.

Nyama Catering started as an idea amongst 2 young enthusiastic students: Johannes Burger and George Zaayman. Being virtually driven from their own country due to a lack of jobs, these two decided that if they must go abroad then they may as well take a little piece of their beloved country with them to share with those longing for it, and even those that have never experienced it. Yes, a spit roast might sound like just a simple cooking method to some, but those who know it and who will come to know it will realise it is much more: a piece of a culture held together by a tradition that refuses to fade away.
Although the spit roast or hog roast was traditionally a lamb / hog (and sometimes even a giraffe) cooked on open flame, it is important to acknowledge that even traditions like these must move with the times. Now spit roasts and hog roasts can be done indoors without any smoke or mess, thus enabling us to have a braai anytime, anywhere. And that’s really how life should be…
