Artist Dominique Thoenes at Talisman

Talisman is honoured to host the work of artist Dominique Thoenes, whose canvases depict local scenes familiar to anyone who lives in and around Karen. Familiar streets, homes and even landmarks like our restaurant are featured in vibrant, beautiful oils.

Dominique graduated from the University of Cape Town with a degree in Fine Art in 1999, and since then has not looked back as she has pursued her dreams and adventured around Africa and the world, living life to the full. She currently spends her time living between Kenya and South Africa, exploring all the creative avenues the continent has to offer.

Come out and see these lovely works through December 8, and note that a portion of all proceeds goes to the Friends of the Karen Street Children. You can read more about Dominique and her work at
