Liz Vels, a very talented artist in her own right, writes poetry of extraordinary beauty and feeling. These poems, and the drawings which accompany them, are distinctively Liz's in style, perception and technique, but completely, recognizable universal in meaning. Liz explores faith, relationships, inner perspectives, without-out compromise, whether drawing or writing. Her ability to create words in a sort of continuum of her representational art makes her, in my opinion, one of South Africa's greatest living poets. Her poetic vision is such an integral part of her artistic expression, she actually makes the paper on to which she stitches her words and images, so that she can obtain the response she is seeking. It was both challenge and privilege to edit this remarkable work. We wanted to preserve the feel and intention of the original creation in this specific format of Liz's artistry - the anthology which you hold in your hands.
