About Jeanne Silver

Jeanne Silver is a fine artist with an extraordinary life story to share with the world. The passion and emotion that portrayed in her paintings are a reflection of the life that she has lived over the last 18 years. She has felt the the pain and suffering experienced by the rural communities whilst serving as a missionary in Malawi. She is a white woman who with her young child then moved into a black location in South Africa. She became part of that community sharing their hopes and aspirations during the liberation struggle. Living in a tin shack she learned first hand just how hard the life can can be for the poor. She knows just how cold winter can be and how uncomfortably hot summer can be. She also knows what it is like to walk 2 miles everyday pushing a wheelbarrow with containers of water.

From this experience she was able to build Freedom Walls in Kakane Gardens, a black location adjoining the Dinokeng Game Reserve. Freedom walls is a legacy to the struggle and contains portraits of prominent political figures in the gallery. The walls are also covered with her paintings. Freedom Walls serves as a tourist attraction having visitors from all over the world.

She also played a significant role in the Development of the DGR Dinokeng Game Reserve - a big five park just north of Pretoria. Her passion is the preservation of the Rhinoceros. These magnificent animals are being driven to extinction at an alarming rate and desperate measures are required to save them. She has recently painted a beautiful series of Rhinoceros to help raise funds for their preservation.
