Annelies Hofmeyr

Kingston, Ontario, Canada

I was born in South Africa in a time when it was still safe to play outside. I lived in Belfast, Northern Ireland after the worst of the bombings were over and married a Canadian in Melbourne, Australia before setting off on a year-long trip with him through parts of Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. After a year of living in Chiang Mai, Thailand I now find myself in Toronto, Ontario, braving the cold and friendly Canadians.

With a few lifetimes worth of memories, comments and opinions, I have found conceptual adornment a rather enjoyable form of expression. I produce gallery work as Annelies Hofmeyr, perform wifely duties as Annelies Illingworth and create conceptual pieces and wearable jewellery as WIT MYT.
