The Lion House

20 Voortrekker Street, McGregor

This dorpshuis, built at the turn of the previous century, is the home of Jo Nowicki and Mike Kamstra. Apart from the three stone lions that account for its name, there are lions in the colourful stained glass of the front door.

At the back of the property is a magnificent succulent garden, and an airy art studio where Jo teaches drawing according to her own unique method which, she guarantees, will bring out the artist in anyone. She has been sketching for 35 years and her impressive collection of drawings is housed here - in drawers, display files and sketching journals.
