Jessie Sutherland

Agent: Hans Pañares
Kempton Park, South Africa

When Jessie left school, a teacher told her she would not get much further in life; she should marry and become a home-maker. Jessie had learning disabilities, years before it was realized a child was either stupid or lazy. She considered herself as both. “Thank you, M’am!” For the incentive. Jessie work in a drawing office. She met her husband Clive in 1973 and had sons Sean and Mark. Sean was killed in a motor accident in 2002 before his 25th birthday. This was devastating in its entirety. Mark’s married and works with Clive in their own business; they live in Kempton Part South Africa. Art is her passion and finds comfort and expression therein. She believes in tolerance and a fair chance to all. She despises hypocrisy.
