About the author:
Ewe was tired of being fleeced and having the wool pulled over her eyes in the large corporate flock for whom she worked. Her future stock options were limited to being roast lamb or someone’s sweater. Neither was appealing for this sheepish artist. Telling them (in the nicest possible way) to flock off, she set off to find ewetopia and after being recognised initially as a lambscape painter, she turned her attention to sheep. Since then she was exhibited in many countries and her paintings hang in collections worldwide.
Ann Gadd is the author of 19 books and one of South Africa’s most popular and successful artists (with a particular fondness for sheep).
After 15 years in advertising and design, tired of having the wool pulled over her eyes, she opted out and plunged into owning a health store, writing books, being an alternative practitioner, journalism and, most of all, painting quirky sheep paintings. She also ran art workshops and was the SA National Boardsailing Champion (in her spare time) while being a mother to her two children and several animals (but sadly, no sheep).
She is responsible for creating the art movement known as Baabaaism, which reflects the social and intellectual preoccupations of sheep, using popular visual language.
