This collaboration is with the lovely fine artist Sharon Boonzaier a long-time creative friend of Legacy Collection. Legacy Collection inserted a piece of Robben Island fencing with a unique serial number within the design.

More about Sharon Boonzaire:
Inspired by our wild coastline waters, and the abundance of our natural fauna and flora, Sharon paints with bold colour and movement, bringing her blank canvasses instantly to life. Having worked in the advertising and film industries for many years, Sharon incorporates bold colour and design elements into her work with fresh colours and spontaneous fluidity. Her deep love of South Africa’s indigenous flora and fauna is clear. A selection of her original artworks are then scanned and printed onto gorgeously luxurious linen ware, fine-wool scarves, décor and gifting which led to the birth of Sharon B Design.
A descendant of one of the forefathers of the South African 20th C fine art scene; the late Gregoire Boonzaier, Sharon Boonzaier has continued with the same passion for creative expression. Sharon incorporates an eclectic mix of different paint mediums, substrates and products to create a unique range of inspirational artworks and décor pieces.
